Does your state issue brake tags?

Asked by Ltryptophan (9105 points ) May 31st, 2010

My state issues brake tags. I don’t get it. Why not incorporate that into the license plate? One stop shop. Why have four different bureaucratic renewals for me to deal with so I can drive? What gives…

Oh, if you don’t have one, how many hoops do you have to jump through to drive around the block? thanks… maybe I’ll move.

It might be one of those unique bits of Louisiana culture. I had to Google to see what a brake tag is. The only references I find are for Louisiana.

Millions of cars get along fine worldwide without brake tags. I don’t even know what a brake tag is, but they’re obviously stupid, costly, and unnecessary.

I thought everybody knew what a brake tag was. its that little time card you punch in in the morning at work. when its time for a smoke break, you click your card in the clock and on your way. now thats a break tag.

I just recently found out you can’t have a registered vehicle in Florida if you don’t have a valid driver’s license. I guess that means blind people aren’t allowed to own cars and hire someone to drive them around.

You have to have car insurance to get a driver’s license, but you need a valid license to get insurance. You have to have both insurance and a license to get a car registered. If you own a car jointly with someone who doesn’t have a valid driver’s license, it is assumed that if the car is registered and legal than the one who doesn’t have a license is going to break the law, so they say “no soup for you!” and don’t allow you to register the vehicle.
