Stickers, permits, renewals, oye

Can someone tell me when the city stopped sending out city sticker notices for your vehicle? June 30 2006 has come and gone and I still have expired stickers on my car. Sure, I forgot, but who marks that down on their calendar? So now I’m rushing online, buying one sticker, then I need to head out to wherever and wait in horrendous lines to buy the other, cuz you know you can’t get one without proof of the other. And on top of that the cops can give me a ticket because of expired stickers and permits. Great system. Anyone else having this problem?

    The good news – when it comes to city stickers, you have until saturday (15th) to get your new sticker without getting fined. I can’t find anything official about this on the city site, so don’t bet the farm. But I have heard that grace period more than a couple of times.

    I bought my sticker online, but you can get them on the spot at most currency exchanges.

    And why is it all or nothing with Chicago/Illinois? I got a very ominous emissions notice – it was very pink and bright – that looked like they were going to torch my brain from the outside. On the inside, they threatened FINAL NOTICE and that I would be in big big big trouble if I didn’t bring my car in by October.

    Final notice… for October… in July. wtf.

    Currency exchange…why do I always forget about them…it would help if the city had one page on their site about all stickers/permits/whatever.

    Every year I forget and every year I get socked with an astronomical ticket. The sad thing is, its so easy to go to the currency to pick one up. There is a financial reason the city probably doesn’t advertise it as much (for their benefit). Good thing I finally sold my car last week!
