    I had received a ticket for $200 for inproper/no city of chicago sticker. I live in Northlake, IL and my car is register in Northlake and I have a city sticker for Northlake. I went to contest the ticket in person and the judge found me guilty because my mother was the co-signer and her name is the second name on the registeration(which will be removed to prevent further tickets.) But I’m the only one on the car title. I was told since she resides in chicago I need to purchase a city of chicago sticker also. Regardless of where my car is registered I need to purchase one for Chicago because one name on the registeration is a resident of Chicago. How can you purchase a city sticker without being registered there, since you need a registeration ID card to purchase a city sticker. Can you be registered in two cities? I searched online but there is no information regarding same stated registrations. But the information I found stated you need to register your car where you reside. Which is what I’ve done. Yet I have to pay City of Chicago $200 for not having a Chicago sticker even though I don’t live or is registered in Chicago.

    That’s a big bunch of CRAP! You’re a Northlake resident, with the vehicle registered in Northlake.

    The Administrative Law Judge is a MORON! Please email the name of the judge to:

    Your plight has ruined my day.

    Personally, I would NEVER pay that ticket. But that’s just me.
