** Similarly certain holidays (again, depending on state law) are considered "silent" and you cannot have any type of festivity involving song and dance on those days. In practice this means there won't be commercial parties, but private parties will only get into problems if they have excessive noise. As all of those holidays are religious and it is worded as a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dancing_ban#Legal_bans "dancing ban,"]] atheist, secular and civil liberties groups have taken to holding dance-ins on those days.

* The episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' "Wild Barts Can't Be Broken" revolved around an enforced curfew for minors after being blamed for vandalizing Springfield Elementary (though unbeknown to the police, it was a drunk Homer, Lenny, Carl and Barney who were the culprits). In retaliation, [[spoiler:the kids started revealing their parents' secrets on radio and the episode ended with a musical number and the curfew being extended to ''everyone under 70'']].

* [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Ankh-Morpork]] experienced this under the rule of Homicidal Lord Winder as seen in ''Discworld/NightWatch''; it may have occurred under other Patricians as well.
** In contrast, Lord Vetinari dislikes curfews. [[PragmaticVillainy They're bad for business]].

* While not quite the same, the effect of the concept known in German as ''Sperrstunde'' is similar. It dictates an hour after which bars (and in some cases discos) have to be closed. Nothing is keeping you from being out and about after this hour, but you really don't have any place to go. Most German cities have greatly reduced the effect of this rule by creating more and more exceptions or gotten rid of it altogether. Some have a nominal one where e.g. fast food restaurants have to close for an hour ("cleaning hour") before they can reopen. However, the whole issue still differs between each of TheSixteenLandsOfGermany.

* Apparently, ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has one where people aren't allowed on the streets at certain times (though this was only shown in "The Ghost of Maiden's Peak"). It was because of this that an [[OutOfCharacterMoment uncharacteristically strict]] Nurse Joy wouldn't let Ash go out and save Brook from the Maiden's ghost.
