If you are issued a traffic ticket as a result of a San Diego California car accident, you should provide the San Diego police officer or San Diego county sheriff the documents they require.  They can ask for your identification, and your vehicle registration.  Once they have completed the traffic ticket, take it and sign it (they will ask you to sign it.  However, do not claim any verbal responsibility!  The traffic ticket along with your signature on it only means that you will definitely show up in court on a specific date. If you are reluctant to sign the ticket, the officer can place you under arrest and take you to jail. So do sign the traffic ticket to avoid problems with the police officer.   At this point, you should sign the citation and consult with an experienced San Diego Car Accident Lawyer.
