Is your 2010-2011 city of Chicago vehicle sticker displayed on your car? It had better be, because starting today, vehicles that don't have a current sticker will be ticketed.
The traditional grace period to July 15 was extended an extra two weeks this year to allow for the replacement of stickers that had faulty adhesive.
Even if motorists who haven't yet applied the new stickers to their windshields somehow elude a ticket, they will still be subject to a late fee of $40 if they wait until Sunday or later to purchase their sticker. The price of the ticket for not having a sticker displayed is $120, according to the city clerk's office. The cost of a vehicle sticker is $75.
Those who still need city stickers can purchase them at more than 400 locations throughout the city, including City Hall, satellite city clerk office locations on the Northwest and Southwest sides, four Department of Revenue locations, and Dominick's grocery stores, select banks, and most currency exchanges, according to the city clerk's office. Retail vendors can charge a fee of up to $5.50 for each vehicle sticker sold.
