Time restrictions on date field

I have used date module to create date field for project.

Some people are putting in 1:00 for time rather than 13:00, so the event shows up as taking place at 1 am. Is there a way to change the time format to 12 hour format, or restrict the available times to say from between 7:00 and 22:00.
