Promise To Appear

I have a Promise To Appear in court in June and am obviously appearing, but i am going to the US in a couple of weeks. My question is, will they question me at the border? Would there be any problem for example, they wont let me cross? Btw I have a valid passport.

were you at anytime arrested and released on a recognizance/promise to appear? If so are there any specific conditions on your recognizance stating that you must remain in the jurisdiction while waiting for your proceedings?

It should be clearly dictated on the recognizance order.

Yes, unfortunately I was arrested and released on a Promise To Appear. There are no specific conditions saying I must remain in the jurisdiction but I have read it over thoroughly, it pretty much states if I don't appear they will issue a warrant for an arrest.

If there are no conditions and you don't have convictions that would prevent you from visiting the US, there should not be a problem.
Have you ever met anyone that would admit to being less than a better than average driver ??
