PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY
LOUISIANA CURFEW LAWS
Most local municipalities in the greater New Orleans
area have local curfew ordinances applicable to persons under 16
years of age who have not been legally emancipated.
The fines and penalties vary by jurisdiction and can
also include sanctions against the parent or legal guardian.
Louisiana State Law reads:
Minor – Illegal For Anyone Under 17 To Drive Between
11 p.m. and 5 a.m. Unless Accompanied By A Licensed Parent, Guardian or Adult
At Least 21 Years Of Age.
Several local ordinances are more restrictive than
the existing state curfew law. We encourage you to check with your
local authorities for verification of the curfew ordinance in your
area to ensure that you and your child are in compliance.
