Dallas, TX asked in DUI / DWI for Texas

Q: Will a speeding ticket get reported to a PO If it was in another county and he wasn't driving his vehicle (interlock)?

He has an interlock system in his car and was driving my car. Does it get reported to his probation officer automatically since the speeding ticket was in another county? Is there any way for his probation officer to find out if it doesn't get reported? This is a second offense for him.

A: Class C traffic tickets are generally not used as reasons to revoke someone's probation. However, failure to install an interlock is. It would be unusual for such a stop to be reported, but you need to prepare for the worst. Have an interlock installed immediately if able. This will help mitigate some of the damages should the traffic stop be reported. Good luck!
