Rayville Police Chief Willie Robinson would like to caution all persons who drive a motor vehicle to make sure they have a valid driver’s license.

“By all means, make sure that in that vehicle is its vehicle registration and vehicle insurance. Also, buckle up when you drive. It’s the law. I always try to express in my articles how important it is to pay close attention to what is said. If not, it will cost you,” he said.

He also stated that if you have received a ticket or criminal charge, make sure you take care of it by the given court date.

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.
