Albany -- With summer just around the corner, Albany commissioners want to remind kids about the city's curfew laws.

Georgia law prohibits anyone under 18 to drive between midnight and 6:00AM. If caught, teens can be ticketed and their parents will have to pick them up.

The City of Albany also has a teen curfew. It requires teens to be off the streets between 11:00PM and 6:00AM Sunday through Thursday. And midnight to 6, Friday and Saturday nights.

The only exceptions are if you're with a parent or returning home from a job.

City commissioners say parents can be fined for allowing their kids to break the curfew.
