It depends here. You can refuse to sign. If you have a valid ID with you, I will just write "Valid ID - Signature Refused." Without a valid ID, I have them sign AND give a print. If both are refused, then I hook them."If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

They don't have to sign the citation in North Carolina. I don't think it's safe to have the offender sign it anyway. I always write in the box for the defendant's signature, "Copy Delivered."

Here in Minnesota they don't sign anything. Officer just signs the ticket and gives it to the offender.Alpha Phi Sigma Alum - Alpha Delta Chapter

No idea what happens here if you refuse to sign, I assume they just write that you refused. I signed the only ticked I've ever got 'cause some day I might be famous, and that trooper will be glad he got my first autograph

In Alabama, if you don't sign the citation, it is off to jail you go.

In VA, your signature is "simply a promise to appear in court, not an admission of guilt." The "ticket" is really a Uniform Traffic Summons; the violator is being summoned to court, but may have the option to enter a written appearance, admitting guilt and prepaying the fine. So... If they refuse to sign the ticket, they go to the magistrate. (Most then get a lecture from the magistrate, and released on a signature bond or personal recognizance. If they continue being a stubborn idiot, then things go downhill...)

You go to jail in WV. The signature on the citation is the same as a signature bond.
