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.
Not much happens. The officer will note that the driver refused to sign the ticket. It will not prevent the ticket from being valid and the fine having to be resolved.
Enjoy jail time until Judge grants bail.
you could possibly get taken to court
It is not necessary that you sign, the ticket is still valid
If you fail at a stop sign how much is the traffic ticket in long beach, ca?
no if you can see
Running a stop sign
This happened to me. You will be handcuffed, arrested and booked. It is a misdemeanor. Just sign the ticket!
Go to court anyways and have the judge sign off on it just in case and you wont get in trouble if the officer didnt sign it, cuz it would be the officers fault.
