The city of Eilat has decided it has had enough of noisy teenagers disturbing the peace in public places late at night, and last week embarked on a campaign to catch them - and to make their parents pay for their behavior, reports www.mynet.co.il. Undercover police and volunteers from the city's parents' patrol went on the hunt for noisy youngsters in public areas from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. one night, and ultimately brought seven youths, aged 14 to 17, in for questioning, calling in their parents to guarantee their good behavior before releasing them. The report said that four of the youths were issued with fines of NIS 660 each, to be paid by their parents.
