Buy city sticker today or face fines

Updated: July 15, 2013 1:42PM

Monday is the last day for Chicago drivers to buy their 2013-2014 Chicago city vehicle stickers without late fees and the possibility of hefty ticket fines, city officials said.

Starting Tuesday, drivers without an up-to-date sticker run the risk of getting at least a $200 ticket. There is also a $60 late fee in addition to the price of the sticker.

The stickers cost $85 for most cars and $135 for larger ones. They can be bought at City Hall or one of its satellite offices until 5 p.m. Partner vendors around the city, like Dominick’s and currency exchanges, also sell the stickers, though there may be a service fee.

“If you sleep in the city and while you’re sleeping your car is in Chicago, those are the people that need to buy the stickers,” said Patrick Corcoran, deputy director for communication and policy for the Cty Clerk.

The revenue from the stickers helps fund repairs and general maintenance for the city’s streets, Corcoran said.
