Another reminder, if your Illinois vehicle registration is up anytime soon:
Due to the lack of a state budget, the Secretary of State’s office is suspending the mailing of vehicle registration renewal reminder notices. By suspending this service, which will save approximately $450,000 per month, the office will be able to prolong the ability to mail vehicle registration renewal stickers, titles and license plates to vehicle owners for a few months longer before the postage account is depleted. Vehicle owners are encouraged to be mindful of their vehicle registration status. Motorists can sign up to receive reminder notices electronically by email.
And yes, lots of people are forgetting to renew without the mailed reminder: In today’s news, “drivers paid more than $2.7 million in fines from Jan. 1 through Feb. 22. That’s $1.2 million more than a year ago.” Sign up for the email alert and check the date on yours today!
