Rayville Police Chief Willie Robinson said it is very important to keep your vehicle documentation up-to-date.

“You are required by law to have a current motor vehicle inspection sticker, vehicle registration and proof of insurance in your vehicle any time that the vehicle is in operation,” the chief said. 

Anyone driving the vehicle should also carry a valid driver’s license.

Chief Robinson also advised the Rayville Police are still getting complaints about loud music.

“I ask that you please consider others when you play your music,” he said. “We do have an ordinance against loud music, so don’t get caught.”

Chief Robinson encourages all citizens to come by the Rayville Police Department at 900 Harrison St. or to call 728-4431 if you need his help in any way.
