    Answered . What the officer is telling you is correct. In Georgia, the officer has the ability to arrest you for a minor traffic violation. Signing the ticket is not an admission of guilt, but an acknowledgement of receiving a copy of the ticket. In the future always sign the ticket. Today, most police departments have video in their patrol cars - as such, I higly reccomend being respectful. You can voice your opposition to the bad ticket in the courtroom.
