( – Attempting to stem the rising tide of crime, San Francisco is instituting a curfew on businesses.

On Tuesday, San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors approved legislation to implement a curfew on specific businesses — the city’s most recent attempt to stem the tide of drug use in the crime-stricken Tenderloin district.

According to the curfew rules, businesses selling “prepackaged food or tobacco products” in the city’s Tenderloin district must close between midnight and 5 a.m.

Businesses selling liquor would need to close between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m.

London Breed (D), Mayor of San Francisco, described the “drug market” occurring after dark as “unacceptable,” stating the solution is “increased law enforcement and new strategies” that should be implemented in tandem with the community. 

Breed added that the curfew was a “good example” of how the city had turned feedback from the community into “real action,” noting that those in the Tenderloin district deserve safe streets day and night.

According to a press release detailing the curfew’s parameters, the legislation designating the curfew will be implemented as a two-year pilot program which will be enforced through fines given by the San Francisco Department of Public Health and investigations conducted by the San Francisco Police Department.

The curfew comes as businesses in the city’s Tenderloin district complain that the worsening drug and homelessness issues have made it challenging to operate a café, restaurant, or any small business in the area.

It also comes as a recent WalletHub report revealed that the Democrat-run city is the “worst run” city in the United States.

The study measured local leadership’s “effectiveness” by comparing the city’s budget to the service quality residents received.
