I recently got a failure to obey highway sign by turning left at a no left turn area. About a year and half ago i got a Reckless Driving ticket. was sentenced to 90 days, 75 suspended. 2 years of good behavior and 90 days suspended license. Will this traffic violation trigger my back time? Does it violate my probation?

Answered 03/16/2010: Given the facts as you describe them, you technically would be in violation of your probation for a Reckless driving offense. However, I suspect you might be incorrect about the amount of probation because a reckless driving ticket has a maximum of 1 year probation. Typically, I would expect that a new offense would have to be one which had the potential of jail before it gave you a problem. Your new offense does not have the potential for jail so I suspect no problem. Good luck with this.
