Chicago City Stickers Expire June 30th
Wearing a traditional sandwich board sign with a picture of this year’s sticker, Robinson stood at the corner of North Ave. and Laramie Ave., across the street from a Currency Exchange, reminding people the end was near–the end of city sticker season that it.
A few other people, dressed in bright orange T-shirts and waving signs pointing to the Currency Exchange stood on corners opposite Robinson as streams of cars drove by.
Drivers can get their city stickers a myriad of ways, and using one of over 400 neighborhood Currency Exchanges is one convenient option for busy car owners. Currency Exchanges charge a $5.50 convenience fee on top of this year’s $85 fee for most passenger cars or $135 for larger, SUV type vehicles.
Chicago’s 2011-2012 city vehicle officially expire on Saturday, June 30th. That’s when drivers should have their new 2012-2013 city sticker purchased and on the windshield of their vehicle.
However, the good news for procrastinators is that enforcement of city sticker compliance does not actually start until July 16th. The Chicago City Clerk’s office gives drivers a 15 day grace period every year.
