Tinley Park grants vehicle sticker grace period

Updated: August 10, 2013 6:23AM



Tinley Park vehicle owners who missed the June 30 deadline to buy a village sticker for their car or truck are getting a grace period before police start ticketing vehicles.

Residents will have until July 31 to buy stickers, although they’ll pay a hefty price for their procrastination.

A sticker for a passenger car or van that had cost $25 by June 30 is now $45, while owners of trucks weighing one ton or less will pay $60 compared with $35 prior to the deadline.

The village said in a news release that about 32,500 stickers have been sold so far, representing about 70 percent of all registered vehicles in Tinley Park.

Come Aug. 1, police will begin “aggressively ticketing” sticker scofflaws, according to the release.

Stickers are sold at village hall, 16250 S. Oak Park Ave., from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. Stickers are available 24 hours a day at the police department, 7850 W. 183rd St.
