Chicago City Vehicle Sticker Deadline is Sunday!
Late Fees, Enforcement Begin July 16
The deadline for purchasing and displaying the 2012 – 2013 Chicago City Vehicle Sticker is here! This Sunday is the last day to purchase the new City Vehicle Sticker before Chicago drivers face a late fee of $60 and a minimum $200 fine starting Monday, July 16.
“There are hundreds of sale locations across the City to purchase the new City Vehicle Sticker,” said City Clerk Susana Mendoza. “Each year we sell nearly 1.2 million stickers. Even though we have seen a nearly 10% increase in sales this year, we still expect tens of thousands of people to purchase their stickers on Friday and over the weekend and there will likely be long waits. We strongly encourage people to use our new online sales locator tool to find one of the 400 sales locations nearest them to avoid the long lines.”
The cost of a passenger City Vehicle Sticker is $85 and large passenger City Vehicle Stickers are $135. Senior citizens, age 65 and older, are eligible to receive one sticker for $30. Annual Residential Zone Parking is $25 and Daily Residential Parking Permits are $8 for 15 permits.
To purchase a City Vehicle Sticker, residents must bring their driver’s license or renewal form and know their vehicle license plate number. This year’s City Vehicle Stickers also contain the vehicle make and model as another security feature. There are more than 400 City Vehicle Sticker sales locations, including City Clerk and Department of Finance Offices, currency exchanges and Dominick’s grocery stores.
