Rayville Police Chief Willie Robinson would like to take the time to wish everyone a Happy Fourth of July.
Chief Robinson would like to convey to everyone to keep the celebrations under control.
He stated that while he understands that on this holiday people will consume alcohol, he advises them to keep the alcohol consumption to a reasonable level and that drinking and driving will not be tolerated. If you are in a situation where you have had too much to drink, please get someone to drive you home or call a taxi service.
Chief Robinson advises that should you drink and drive; you will be arrested and prosecuted.
“Remember, a life cannot be replaced,” he said.
Chief Robinson would also like to remind everyone that the State of Louisiana is still in Phase 2 of recovery during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Please remember, social distancing and hand washing. Take all necessary precautions during any outings,” he said.
Chief Robinson said he does not want the community to become complacent and forget that we are still very much at risk for the virus.
