West Monroe, LA asked in Traffic Tickets for Louisiana

Q: Is it true that a first-offense violator of Revised Statute 32.77 shall be issued only a warning?

I called the D.A.'s office, and was informed that my fine would be $232 by the date on my ticket. Even with a first offense that would be my fine. Is the information on this site accurate in 2021?

A: I am not sure where you saw this on this site, but I do not see how you can violate this and law enforcement be required to issue you a warning the first time. That said, the statute does say that there must be appropriate signs or markings to indicate the beginning and end of the no passing zones.
