Video: How To Remove Your Chicago City Sticker
City Clerk Susana Mendoza Shows Drivers How To Get That Darn Sticker Off Your Windshield
With Chicago city sticker season coming to an end, The Expired Meter thought it might be helpful to readers to produce an instructional video on how to get last year’s city sticker off your windshield.
We tried to find an expert on this matter so we contacted the Chicago City Clerk’s office–the city agency in charge of selling the 1.3 million city stickers sold every year to see if City Clerk Susana Mendoza could help us out.
Clerk Mendoza had previously extolled her sticker removing talents, so we thought we’d see if she would be kind enough to share her skills on camera.
Originally, we tried to have the Clerk remove the city sticker from her personal car. But the big hail storm a few weeks ago really hit her Little Village neighborhood hard and put her personal vehicle out of commission. The golf ball sized hail gave her Toyota Prius about 100 dents and broke her back windshield, with the damage coming in over $8000.
So one of Mendoza’s staff members lent us their car to allow her to show off her method for getting that darn sticker off your windshield. With just a bottle of Windex, a razor blade, some paper towels and a little elbow grease, Mendoza has the city sticker off in a jiffy.
Get some paper, a pen and get ready to take some notes.
