The city of Chicago is giving residents an extra 24 hours to purchase vehicle stickers after problems were reported with the city's computer system.

Tuesday was to be the last chance for motorists to buy annual vehicle stickers before fines are imposed. However, currency exchanges and other locations that weren't part of the city clerk's office were reporting problems with after-hour sales.

The problems occurred after the clerk's office closed at 5 p.m.

Because of the computer problems, the city clerk's office announced late Tuesday motorists will have until midnight Wednesday to purchase stickers without adding a $60 late fee, or opening motorists without a sticker to a $200 ticket.

Chicago vehicle stickers expired June 30th. However, motorists were given a two-week grace period to buy new stickers.
