So, to sum up, the curfew law does apply even when she is in her vehicle, and being accompanied by an individual over 18 is not enough...it must be a parent or guardian, or she must be engaged in one of the other activities outlined above under the "Exceptions" section, such as traveling from work or a school activity.
Hope this helps clear things up.
