Do you have your new Chicago vehicle sticker yet? It’s supposed to be on your windshield today.
The grace period for buying the new parking stickers ended Thursday night. Any car owned by a city resident must have a sticker if it parks on city streets, and especially in metered zones.
The fine is $200 a day.
The grace period for late fees will be extended from 15 to 30 days effective July 1. So, a motorist with a vehicle sticker expiring June 30 will have until July 30 to purchase a sticker without paying an additional $60 late fee.
Vehicle stickers are available at over 350 locations citywide, including currency exchanges, some of which are open 24 hours. The Chicago City Clerk’s office will also be open from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, July 2, to give drivers an extra chance to buy their stickers.
Please note that not all city stickers expire on June 30 — just check yours to make sure you don’t get fined.
