All residents of Chicago who own or use a vehicle are required to display a valid “City Sticker” on their windshield’s lower right-hand/passenger-side corner regardless of where the vehicle is registered. New residents and those who recently purchased a vehicle have 30 days (and the proper documentation) to purchase a sticker and avoid the late fee. City stickers must be renewed annually and you must show proof of address and your vehicle registration ID card or courtesy reminder when purchasing a sticker in person.
