Chicago city sticker (City Clerk handout )
The clock starts ticking now.
Car owners have 15 days starting Monday to get their city sticker or face a ticket.
Technically, the 2012-2013 sticker expired June 30 but the city allows a 15-day grace period through July 15. Starting July 16, car owners who haven't bought a sticker will have to pay a $60 late fee and could get a $200 ticket.
Prices have stayed the same for the city sticker at $85 for a small passenger car and $135 for a large passenger.
City stickers can be bought online or in person at the City Clerk's Office or other sales locations including currency exchanges and ward offices on select days. But car owners should bring their renewal form with them or any one of three other approved Vehicle Identification Number documentation such as vehicle registration, insurance card displaying the VIN or the vehicle title.
Next year in June 2014, the city will go to year-round city sticker sales and car owners will get a new renewal month offset by six months after they renew their Illinois license plate.
