Rayville Police Chief Willie Robinson advised, “When you get a traffic ticket, that is considered a moving violation, which affects your driving record as well as your insurance. Rather it be by my officers or any other law enforcement agency. So, as you travel, please do the speed limit. If you do the speed limit, you stand a chance of not receiving a ticket or having a crash.”
Chief Willie L. Robinson Sr. also advised all citizens of Rayville that it is very important to be in court if you are scheduled to appear.
If a bench warrant is issued, you will be located and arrested for failure to appear and you may be incarcerated.
Chief Robinson encourages all citizens to come by the Rayville Police Department’s offices at 900 Harrison St. or to call 728-4431 if you need his help in any way.
