Chicago Vehicle Grace Period Rules Change

The City of Chicago is changing its motorist grace period rules regarding deadlines for purchasing and displaying their Chicago City Vehicle Sticker. This change is effective July 1, 2016 and will make motorists eligible to be ticketed immediately following their vehicle sticker’s expiration. 

For example, if your vehicle sticker expires on June 30, you are eligible to be ticketed on July 1. The $200.00 ticket can be issued daily. 

Additionally, the grace period for late fees will be extended from 15 to 30 days effective July 1. A motorist with a vehicle sticker expiring June 30 will have until July 30 to purchase a sticker without paying an additional $60.00 late fee.
