Kenner Brake Tag Station

 

Kenner Brake Tag Station Remains Closed, Five

Satellite Brake Tag Stations Now Issuing Brake Tags; No Penalty

 for Expired Brake Tags Replaced by Feb. 1, 2021

 

Brake tags are currently available at five satellite stations. A sixth location, Charlie’s Automotive, is currently not providing brake tags, but that is expected to only be temporary.

The businesses that are currently providing Kenner brake tags are: Radecker Tire and Auto, 1934 Williams Blvd.; Discount Zone, 4045 Williams; Kenner Automotive, 1315 27th St.; Rick’s Auto Care, 2712 Crestview and New Orleans Dent Repair, 1328 Carroll St.

Both one-year tags, at a cost of $10, and two year tags for $20 will be available for vehicles under 10,000 pounds. The new brake tag satellite operation was unanimously approved by the City Council on Aug. 21, 2020.

Residents will have 45 days from the opening of the satellite stations – or Feb. 01, 2021 - to get a brake tag with no penalty and that will apply to everyone, not just those with tags that expired during the pandemic, Mayor Zahn said. In addition, Police Chief Mike Glaser said he has instructed officers not to issue any citations for brake tags until after the 45-day period - or Feb. 01, 2021.

Only auto repair businesses or gas stations are eligible to become certified to issue Kenner brake tags. All brake tag inspectors must pass a test in order to be certified. Inspectors who have been previously tested and approved by the state also will be certified.

There will be additional hours of operation at some of the satellite stations, compared to the schedule at the city’s brake tag station. Please contact the individual satellite stations to confirm the times they are issuing brake tags and check the city’s Facebook Page and website for any new stations.

Mayor Zahn said the city is committed to retaining the Kenner employees who worked at the city brake tag station. They will either help to manage the satellite stations, assist in providing brake tags to commercial vehicles, taxi cabs and ride-share vehicles or be reassigned within the Code Enforcement Department.

Any auto repair business or gas station interested in becoming a certified brake tag location can email mvi@kenner.la.us for more information.
