You can’t beat the police on the side of the road so don’t try. When you get a traffic ticket the officer will ask you to sign the bottom of the ticket. Many people are reluctant to do so. When you sign the ticket you are not admitting to anything and you are not agreeing to anything. In Alabama, all traffic offenses are criminal but you are generally entitled to a signature bond. When you sign the ticket you are giving your word to the court that you will appear at the court date. If you don’t sign the ticket the officer will have no choice but to take you to jail. So just sign the damned ticket!
