Traffic Services Unit
The Traffic Unit is responsible for traffic safety throughout the city and the investigation of significant or fatal traffic collisions. This is accomplished through public education, enforcement, and engineering. The Traffic Unit reviews, approves and processes all traffic collision reports, along with investigating all hit and run collisions and DUI investigations.
In 2017 the Traffic Unit developed the hashtag (#) reference: #thinkanddrive social media campaign to raise awareness on the dangers of unsafe driving. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Impaired driving (drugs and alcohol)
- Distracted driving
- Reckless driving
- Street racing
- Motorcycle safety
- Seatbelt use
Help support the campaign by using the #thinkanddrive slogan, sharing our posts, and driving safely!

Speed Limit Traffic Survey Results
On Tuesday, June 19, the Chino City Council adopted a comprehensive speed zone resolution which will change or implement speed limits throughout the city. These changes were the result of an Engineering and Traffic Survey, conducted by the Public Works and Police Department. After evaluating the results, 54 street segments will be affected, with 21 of those street segments increasing, 9 decreasing and the remaining segments being newly created speed limits.
City staff is working diligently to replace and install the necessary speed limits signs throughout the City. We ask that all motorists drive safely and pay attention to all signs on the roadways, with special attention to the changed speed limits. Any changed or newly installed speed limit signs will be temporarily flagged to bring additional attention to them.
