The law in Florida has been amended such that you only have to sign a ticket if it (1) is a "criminal" traffic citation or (2) it requires a "mandatory hearing" in court.
Section 318.14(2) of the Florida Statutes provides:
(2) Except as provided in ss. 316.1001(2) and 316.0083, any person cited for a violation requiring a mandatory hearinglisted in s. 318.19 or any other criminal traffic violation listed in chapter 316 must sign and accept a citation indicating a promise to appear.
A citation for a bad tail light, a civil traffic offense, does not require a signature. There is a case currently pending in Orlando Florida that is addressing this specific issue where an officer lied to a motorist that he had to have her "sign" the tail light ticket.
Normally a signature on the ticket admits only that you were given a copy and that you agree to appear on the charge. In some states, refusing to sign a ticket is a separate charge and since you are not agreeing to appear on the charge, you may be arrested and held for appearance in front of a judge.
If you refused to sign a traffic ticket then you could be dentained and could be facing a night or two days in jail. By signing it it doesnt means that you broke the law. It only means that you are going to show up for court. In a few states some officers sign RTS (refused to sign). I hope this answered you question.
