Traffic Enforcement

Who to Call

Enforcement of traffic safety falls under the heading of law enforcement, and is carried out by law enforcement agencies such as the California Highway Patrol (CHP), Sonoma County Sheriff's Department or City Police. If you have observed a pattern of traffic safety violations in a specific area, you should not hesitate to contact law enforcement. When doing so, it is helpful to provide as much information as possible, such as the specific location(s), day(s), or time(s) of the day that the violations are observed.

Follow the Rules

It is your responsibility as a motorist and pedestrian to know the rules of the road and follow them. That includes knowing the speed limit, paying attention to road conditions, watching for pedestrians, and knowing where parking is not permitted.

Traffic safety violations are a serious offense and can result in citations, revocation of your driver's license, or even arrest.

Never drive under the influence

Driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or any mind-altering substance - including legal prescription drugs - can impair driving, and is against the law.
