What happens if I signed the ticket, but the cop walks away with my copy?
So back in October, I got a ticket for speeding going south on Oak/Hwy99...
I was pulled over, and nothing out of the ordinary. Licence and insurance papers. I get issued a ticket and sign it.
But as the cop returned to his cruiser, he had my copy of the ticket. I don't know why, but I flagged him down and he gave me my ticket and then proceeded off again.
I'm just wondering what would happen if I didn't flag this guy down or wasn't handed my ticket after signing.
Was I better off not being naive and flagging him down?
