This town tries to suck every last dime out of me. Having to get a stupid sticker for my car doesnt even make sence. Does anyone else not get these? Just wondering if I should get one or not. I personally don't want to advertise where I'm from on my car.

Thoughts?

I think most cities have these now it's a way to increase taxes without calling it a tax.
If you are required to give money to a government agency it is a tax.

A city sticker? I have never heard of anyone getting in trouble for not having one. So i would chance it and say you didn't know you needed one

Stupidity is no excuse. I'm sure the sticker is cheaper than a ticket.

Move to namokie township,pontoon beach or Mitchell no city sticker required. That's a cheap 50k depending on your taste in a home to spend instead of the what $20 for a sticker?

Do us all a favor and go by the rules! It's people like you that don't do what you are required to do that makes rates go up on everything! Man I can't stand this mentality.

Really? Are you so poor that you can't afford five bucks? I bet that you will REALLY be whining when you get that $50 ticket in the mail.
BTW, It is spelled S-I-N-C-E.

I didn't mind paying for the city sticker but I HATED advertising anything GC on my car. I have bought the sticker but never applied it to the windshield, just left it in the glove box. The one time I was questioned about it was when some uninsured hoosier scum hit my car. rthe cop asked about it and I showed it to him, still in the glassine envelope and told him I forgot to put it on the windshield, no problem.

For that matter, I hate having any kind of stickers on my windshield or car, whether municipal, parking or from the oil-change shop, whatever. It just looks tacky as hell, especially when you see the cars with half the passenger windshield covered because they never remove the old ones.

/rant about pet peeve, lol

BTW, it is spelled SENSE. I love when people can spell but can't use proper grammar.

I never bought one and I don't plan on it. In high school drivers Ed never was told about them. At the DMV when I got my license they never said a word. Got my plates and registration still nothing. Never received anything in the mail. I have owned 5 vehicles and never received any notice in the mail or by an means from the city. Now how am I supposed to know I need a city sticker? How can a GC citizen find the info or receive notice?

That's fine and all but you where aware of the fee. Now what if they don't tell you it's not on the forms you fill out or any flyers and let play all season then at the end of the season they try and fine you for not paying your fees.

i just peel a small strip at the top and stick it on the glass. you really have to look pretty close to read it. the cops see it in the window and when you need to remove it, you just slowly pull it up. they do roadblocks for those very stickers and anything else they can write you up for.

my plates are registered in town. i get two cards in the mail every year. but if you should hit a roadblock one day, you will have pay a fine. its a lot cheaper to pay it and save that hassle. 5 bux for a car and i have a ranger truck and its 10. they also have a senior citizens discount too. i cant say for sure i thought it miiiight be half price. not sure though.

My car was parked on the street and I woke up to a ticket on my windshield for no sticker. I guess the cops were really bored that night.

Anyhow, just buy the darn thing.

Well I went to go buy one today and the office that sells them was at lunch the same time I take my lunch. How is someone supposed to take care of business when the office works the same hours I do. Its bs and I've decided to F it and take my chances not buying one.
