  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 06/13/11 12:42 pm | updated: 06/13/11 12:42 pm
A business curfew for Camden is to be voted on this week.
The proposal is designed to curb drug-related crime, which Camden police say often occurs near after-hours eateries.
Every restaurant, retail store, and fast-food joint in the city's nine square miles would close from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. on weekdays and midnight to 6 a.m. on weekends.

Exceptions to the curfew would be bars and taverns with liquor licenses and automotive services at gas stations.
