Does Taos Have A Curfew For Minors?

Minors in Taos have to follow a curfew. Parents, legal guardians or other adults have to make sure that children they are responsible for follow the established curfew too. After curfew, kids can’t be at a public assembly on public or private property, in any public building on the street or otherwise out and about without an adult. The only exception to curfew is if the minor has a note in writing from their parents or they are out because of employment that they are legally allowed to engage in at their age.

The Taos curfew for minors is as follows:

  • From Midnight to six o’clock A.M. the following day on Friday and Saturday nights.
  • From eleven o’clock P.M. to six o’clock A.M. the following day on Sunday through Thursday.

Even still, parents should know that a minor that is in a moving vehicle after curfew won’t be stopped by the police unless the officer has reason to believe that the child isn’t following the curfew ordinance. When a child is out past curfew, the officer will get the child’s name and the phone number and address of their parent and/or legal guardian. The officer will report the info to their supervisor who will then have written notice served to the parent and/or legal guardian.

After that, if the child violates curfew again within a period of a year, the parent will be subject to fines.
