Lexington has a new curfew law in effect.  The new curfew ordinance sets midnight every night as the time for those under 18 to be inside.  The previous law established 1:00 a.m. as the deadline on weekends.  

Teenagers experienced the biggest change for the first time this past weekend.

It was a warm spring Saturday night when seven teenagers gathered at a Lexington Sonic Drive-In.

Several of the teens, including 18-year-old Luke Florence, 17-year-old Lindsey Campbell, and 16-year-old Annie Vandenburg, voiced their opinions about the curfew.
