I would not recommend anyone refusing to be identified, as they then have the right to detain you to verify your identity. This may be morally deplorable IMO, but within their legal rights as laws currently stand. Some state laws may not allow this, but the Supreme Court has upheld states versions of these laws. Good luck and stay safe out there! Ps. Police may enforce laws that don't exist. At this point you have two choices. A. Take ticket or get arrested and fight in court. Or b. try to find a work around. Ex. On my recent trip from Oregon to Texas, two imperial county sheriffs argued for 15 minutes on side of highway 86 north of brawely, ca. When i realized the argument was escalating to the point of violence or arrest, I conceded defeat and spent the $1 for the bus to el centro where I continued by thumb. The choice is yours, but some cops are dangerous, and you could be beaten, tasered, pepper sprayed, etc. all the cops have to say is you attacked them, then you get a serious felony, prison sentence, and every cop who runs your I'd after will hate you. Some will plant drugs on you as well, ive witnessed that. Be careful out there!
