The end is near.
There are exactly seven days left until Chicago vehicle owners need to purchase and display their Chicago city vehicle sticker on their windshield or face heavy fines and/or late fees.
The 2011-12 city sticker expired on June 30th, but the Chicago City Clerk's office always gives drivers a 15 day grace period to comply. This year, July 15th falls on a Sunday.
But the last minute rush for city stickers may be less hectic than in past years. Because based on city sticker sales numbers released by City Clerk Susana Mendoza's office, many more city stickers have been sold this year.
