It’s Stick It or Ticket Day in Chicago

July 15, 2011

Chicago motorists: Did you get your 2011-2012 city vehicle stickers? Hope so, because today is the deadline.

Friday, July 15 is Stick It or Ticket Day in Chicago, the final day you have to display your new vehicle sticker in the corner of your windshield.

I assume the new sticker will instead say Mayor Rahm Emanuel and City Clerk Susana Mendoza.

I wish I could tell you procrastinators that there’s a grace period, but that’s over now. Last year’s vehicle stickers actually expired at the end of June, and the grace period gave Chicago residents two extra weeks to get their new ones.

If you buy the sticker after July 15, there will be a $40 late fee attached to it. If you get pulled over for no sticker, that ticket carries a fine of $120. Enforcement begins Saturday, July 16.

You can get your stickers at more than 400 sale locations across the city, including currency exchanges, Dominick’s grocery stores and Department of Revenue offices.

In addition, the City Clerk’s office is hosting its final Alderman City Sticker Ward Sale on July 15 from 9 to 3 p.m. at Alderman Mitts’ office, 5344 W. North Avenue; and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Alderman Mell’s office, 3649 N. Kedzie Avenue.

You can also purchase your sticker online. Visit cityclerk.com.
