On the streets of Tulsa, teens can't be out past 11 PM weeknights, midnight on weekends.

Once they pass outside the city limits, authorities say there's no way to regulate young people being out and about late at night. But a bill is moving through the Oklahoma legislature that would allow some unincorporated areas to create a juvenile curfew. Opinions among officials and teens are mixed.

The bill’s language allows Tulsa County officials some leeway to tailor the curfew to address problems in their areas. The bill could soon be on the governor's desk.
