City Stickers

Chicago Parking Regulations

"All Chicago residents driving and/or parking a vehicle for which they are responsible in the City of Chicago are subject to the Chicago Wheel Tax and must purchase a Chicago City Vehicle Sticker. This includes Chicago residents that maintain their registration outside of the City of Chicago, but use the vehicle in the City."

- Source: City Clerk, Anna M. Valencia

 

The City Vehicle Sticker is an annual wheel tax levied by the City of Chicago. If you have a vehicle within the city limits for a period of thirty (30) days or longer, you are required to purchase a sticker. Motorcycles and mopeds are also required to pay the "Wheel Tax." This includes Chicago residents that maintain their registration outside of the City of Chicago, but use the vehicle in the City.

 

Vehicle stickers are valid upon purchase, meaning when you get your new vehicle sticker, remove your old sticker and replace it with the new one. Your expiration month and year is printed on your vehicle sticker. Vehicle stickers expire on the final day of the expiration month.

New Resident

You have 30 days from the date you purchased your vehicle (or, if received as a gift, the date you received your vehicle) to purchase and display a Chicago City Vehicle Sticker.

New Vehicle

You have 30 days from your move-in date to purchase and display a Chicago City Vehicle Sticker.

If you are a new resident to Chicago, or your vehicle is new to you (or both), avoid a potenal $60.00 late fee and only pay for the time from your move-in/purchase date through the sticker expiration date. 

 

You are subject to the Wheel Tax on the exact date you move to Chicago and/or acquire a new vehicle, and your City Vehicle Sticker Term Start will be the first of the month in which you moved to Chicago or acquired your vehicle. The date your document was processed/printed/stamped by the issuing entity (Illinois Secretary of State, Illinois Department of Revenue, etc.) is irrelevant.

 

Please ensure that your move-in/purchase date are clearly indicated on your validated documentation.

 

City Vehicle Stickers can be purchased online through the online sales application:

Motorists with Disabilities - Parking

Placard and Plate Information

Due to a new law enacted by the Illinois General Assembly, significant changes have been made to the Persons with Disabilities Parking Program, which affect both new applicants and current disability placard and license plate holders. Information can be found by visiting the Secretary of State's Disabled Parking Placard.

 

  • The recertification for current disability placard and license plate holders will begin in April 2013. Enforcement of the new provisions will begin January 1, 2014.

Parking Meters

Illegal use of Placards

Residential Disabled Parking

Parking Appeals

The Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities evaluates appeal letters in request of a review of the denial of a residential disabled parking sign. For more information, contact MOPD at 312.747.0114.

 
  • If you have yellow and gray placard, you will be exempt from paying any meter in the State of Illinois.

 

  • If you have a blue and white placard, you now must pay the meter but you can still park in any designated disabled parking space.

 

  • The State of Illinois honors disabled parking placards from most states and foreign countries. However, as of January 2014, out of state placards will no longer allow a motorist to receive a meter exemption in Illinois.

 

  • You cannot park in a space during a time when parking is prohibited (i.e. “No Parking, 2 p.m.-4 p.m.”).

People with disabilities who meet the qualifications can now apply for a Residential Parking Permit. This permit ensures that residents of densely populated areas have access to parking near their residence. To find out more information visit Residential Disabled Parking Signs Information.
