Certain restrictions while on probation are to be expected: no driving, no alcohol or drug consumption, no contact with the alleged victim or repayment of restitution. However, some restrictions can put a huge damper on your life in many ways. Oftentimes being placed on probation can create unexpected consequences.
For instance, not many people realize that they are not permitted to travel outside a certain area or that they require special permission to go on vacation or travel for business. Other times, people are sentenced to wear a GPS bracelet which will have a significant effect on every aspect of your life.
