How soon should you contact your probation officer after a traffic violation ?

It depends on how your probation officer instructed you. If you are required to report law enforcement contact as soon as it happened, then you should do it right away. If you are not required to report law enforcement contact as soon as it happened, you should report it at your next appointment. Either way, just don't fail to report it because a civil infraction is not a violation of probation, but failing to report contact with law enforcement can be a violation.
