Mayor Daley has cracked down hard on all you lowlife scofflaws, and considers this (along with parking violations) as a prime revenue source to balance the city budget and make him look fiscally responsible. You either pay and pay damn quickly, or the City Of Chicago will first raise the fine, then put your name/license into their system and try to seize your vehicle and sell it at auction. All proven legal and unbeatable. Whadda you gonna do bout it?

Submit now or pay big time. The King of Chicago For Life has you by the balls.

That's right. And here's the killer, the end of this month the new ones come out. Right now if you want to be proper on things, you'll go to city hall downtown and pay 85 for a metal circle (not a real sticker) to put on with your license plate and pay the 120 fine. Then at the end of this month you'll pay 45 bucks for the new one for the rest of the year. Your total right now WILL be $250.00.

Just don't forget, end of this month it's the normal price of 45 bucks for the whole year. You live in Chi, pay on time and no probs after that. I'll show you my burn marks whenever I can. lol

P.S. there's nothing to contest. If you didn't have it your fault.

Yeah. But don't get caught again. I got my ticket when it was parked! If they want they can simply pull you over. It's very obvious you don't have one when you don't have one. It's a big circle metal plate. If they just see the standard retangle it's over. It's the cops decision. But everytime it'll be 120. You'll be taking the chance. That's all.

Cause we all know there's only so much bowling you can handle in the burbs. lol

There are a ton of things not to like about Chi but man, 45 bucks as a one time fee c'mon.

It's something required on all cars and motorcycles. If you reside in the city of Chicago it is a mandatory thing. Even some burbs require a city sticker (though they're not usually as pricey as Chi).

The new ones you can grab at a Currency Exchange (if they have them now I don't know). One of the fastest ways is going downtown.

I don't know about "visitors". I mean it'll be easy to prove if your burb sticker is already on (if your township/city requires one). Other than that they probably can use your plate and/or VIN and verify you're not a Chi person.

No, this is not true. Before they issue the ticket (bike parked or you're out and about), the CHICAGO COP is supposed to "run" your plates BEFORE he writes you up.....if the plates come back as the bike registered outside of Chicago (Residence), he cannot/should not write you up. Unless he's being lazy or being a DICK or both. Even if he pulls you over and you tell him you're a Suburbanite, if you piss him off, he'll write you the ticket and make you appear in court.
You WILL beat the ticket in court but you'll have to bring proof you don't live in the Shitty, I mean City.

I just had some screwdrivers and ordered a pizza. Sure you can do that in the burbs but I can do that or hit a live band bar place and then a club and then another eatery. Why did he open this can of worms? lol

What are your yearly plate fees, in addition to the sticker fee? In Ohio it's $35.00 per year and no city or county stickers. Indiana's plates are based on the value of the vehicle. I'm REALLY glad I don't live there.

"For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon.' The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Here is a glutton and a drunkard..."

The first turn is the worst turn, between the left ear and the right one.

Once a year we pay for city sticker and plate sticker. Forgot for a car but I believe it's about 35.00 and the city is 65.00. And no matter what you don't want to buy late. ThBut Bill it's been so long for me. I'm sure someone driving a car can correct me. I'm just a 2-wheeler (yes, all year).

last year in nebraska it cost me: 27 dollars to pay my, liscense fee and taxes on a 94 ford thunderbird. when we moved here my girlfriends "tax and liscensing fees" were closer to 200-250 plus the stupid city sticker, and residential parking sticker for a 94 mazda protege (so essentially well over 300 bucks)... I can't even imagine what it costs for a newer vehicle... oh ya around 500 for a 2000 bike...

Sandman, you crack me up.

So if newrider had paid the $45 he wouldn't have gotten a ticket. Guess you'd better suck it up, bro, and next time be legal in the first place.

As for the city/suburb thing, I live in Naperville and work in the Loop. I like the city a lot, but I have too much stuff to live in it (my SUV, gf's car, 3 motorcycles, 6x12 enclosed trailer) and parking would kill me. I drive down here in the evenings and weekends when I work and I haven't been hassled at all for no city sticker.

We're all Chicagoland people. Group hug!

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I bleed GREEN

I want you to try that in the city And for bowling, I brought the boys a few times, cause they wanted to try. Plus, for roads with corners, you have to come to the burbs

I've had to street park my car since late feb. over in wicker park. Since then, I've received, oh, 5 or 6, $50 parking tickets for all sorts of bullshit that were untrue or not my fault. Chicago parking and registration are the biggest bunch of low life cock sucker scammers in the world. I'm so sick of these fucking morons posting 3 signs over a mile radius about street cleaning the night before they are coming out and then ticketing the entire street. I've had nothing but problems with parking since I moved. Thank god I moved today (again) and my job hooked it up with not only my apartment but the parking garage below the building. Bunch of dirty fuckers I tell you...I've contested 4 tickets that are all still pending. On a side note, don't worry about city sticker shit if you aren't from chicago. I am baffled someone actually got pulled over in chicago for such a violation. I blow through yellow lights too late, pause briefly at stop signs, ride a bike which currently has expired plates (oops), speed, and generally break numerous driving laws here......the LAST thing I'd expect them to do is try to nail me on a sticker, that's poor odds when it comes to pulling people over. I've lived in the city now for 7 years and haven't gotten pulled over once, and I have broken the law right in front of them. Sounds like the cop had a 14 foot pole stuck in the anus. I'm so sick of city parking shit.

Sorry, no burb compares to the city of CHICAGO Rick. C'mon. I would trump anything you put on the table. See, if this can of worms open up people would forget that it's basically what you want to be around which comes down to an individuals interest(s).

Me, the burbs are too quiet and I don't like the "life is out" after 8pm. I like the fact that people are walking around on Clark checking out the shops and just hangin' out. The Puerto Rican parade celebration is still going on! YEAH! I have the ability to hit all the different restuarants of different nationalities on probably 2 blocks! In the burbs it's 2-3 street lights and if you're walking around too much somebody might call the cops cause that'll be unusual (at night). And the crime is higher cause there is more people per capita. That's an easy one. You have 100,000 compared to 1 million yeah, you'll have a lot of crime with the million!

People that live here know the pros and cons and the pros out weigh the cons so hey, it's on. I'd rather live here and be by everything than to have to make plans to visit. It's apples and oranges. Besides, the world knows about Chicago and howl this is a bomb spot to be. Doubt they know where you're even at bro. :P

I have a garage for my bike. I pay 35 a month. No, it doesn't compare to a burb but then I don't own property either. So no comparison.

Guess people forgot it was some bored kids from a burb that shot up other kids in a school. Basically cause it was nothing to do. Oh that's a whole other can of worms Rick. Let's not go there.

By the way, if you continue to think you won't be victim cause of where you live - you will be.

I think that Chicago alone is bigger than the whole population of Nebraska state! lol

So um, yeah, taxes and everything is high. That's a given. It's a major metropolitan place. What did you guys expect?

Chicago is a great place to be young in, but once I had to start thinking about what public schools my daughter would be attending it was on to the 'burbs! The fact that I only pay $30.00 per car and $5.00 for a bike for village registration is gravy. + as a property owner you get very little bang for the buck tax dollar wise in the city. I'm still close enough to get in easily if need or want be.

"but the suburban scumbags they don't care, just get fat and dye their hair. I love living in the city!"
