    Default violate curfew rules

    Can I say 'violate curfew rules' in the following sentence?

    Some teenagers often violate curfew rules set by their parents by getting back to house after a particular time.

    Default Re: violate curfew rules

    If there is a curfew, then 'a ... time' doesn't work as it has been fixed; it would be better to say something like after the time set.
