Is this only for Delhi region? I am asking because in AP, the current period is 6 months, not three as mentioned.

Sir,
PUC sticker is invalid, at least in Kerala. They need the certificate in approved format, with photo of the vehicle number-plate printed on it.

My Fabia has a toll slip clip attached to the windshield. I usually remove the transparent foil on the parking sticker and stick it to the inside of a plain CD cover (the small transparent kind) and place it under the clip.

This lets me change the sticker when I move from one office to the other - and more importantly, allows me to keep my windshield sticker free!

CrAzY dRiVeR - Its a good thread, very valid concern. Most of our cars spot atleast 3-4 stickers. And to add to the worse, company changes the standard every now and then or rather we change the company! Even car service centers add theirs which we need to clean again!

As someone mentioned, looks like Skoda has this ticket holder as OEM fitment in their cars (atleast some models). Its a very handy thingy and doesnt look odd too.

Some of my friends, use transparency sheet where they put the stickers and this thin sheet is inserted between the narrow gap between Windshield and Dashboard. Even I tried it while using my friend's car temporarily.

Somehow this ticket holder options aren't common in Kerala, checked with couple of shops in Kottayam and Kochi earlier. Now the complete focus is on transparent cooling films and other ways to bluff cops.

Yes, I realized the advantage of the clip in the Skoda after I got one. Stickers just keeping piling on. Office, Residence, Client location, Kids' school..what not! This clip solves all problems in one go. As Karthik mentioned earlier, I just cut a CD cover to size and then plug the sticker I need to to the clip to get access to the location.

Alternatively, I feel that too many stickers on the car windshield is yet another exposee in our ever "safe" cities makin it just simpler for those rogues who really want to stalk you.

I prefer just the PUC, PDI and AASI stickers on my windshield.

My only wish is SOMEONE invents a generic RF ID that I can recharge at my own will and breeze through all the toll booths in this country. That would super UBER cool.

I usually stick the sticker on a transparency sheet cut to size and then stick the transparency to the windshield with sellotape. Since sellotape adhesive is not so strong. It can be easily wiped off with a glass cleaner once the sticker is removed.

Guys, resorted to a simple paper clip and I'm a happy man! The laminated cards ensure sticker has high visibility, will last long, is properly visible from outside, neat and presentable from the inside and best - no stickers on my car when i exit apartment/ office.

The solution was a bit simpler than i initially thought. Luckily Punto has a strap on the front side of the passenger sun-visor (For airbag advisory) which I can use to hold the laminated cards.

I'll click pics and post when i get into the car.
Here's the outside and inside view of the clips in both my cars.

Another solution - cut a thick paper or thin cardboard to approximate shape of your sticker. Then paste your sticker on the same. Put a hole at the top and run a thick thread through the hole and make a knot. Hang it from your rear view mirror. You can remove it as and when you want and put it back.

Note: I HAD to do this as my 1.5 year old loves to test how quickly he can pull out the stickers on the windshield - everytime he is in the car.

Default re: How to avoid sticking parking stickers on the windshield

Finally I am very happy, I was facing the same parking sticker menace but I just have spared myself with a DIY, a person puts his hard earned money and efforts to buy and maintainhis vehicle and ends up putting futile stickers on the vehicle.

In fact many of my friends suffered the same problem and one fine day I woke up with this firm thought that today I am going to solve this problem once and for all.

Here I am sharing what I did followed by pictures for your convenience.

1. Took a regular cloth hanging clip and separated the two ends by taking out the spring.

2. Painted it to colour black as its the most suitable and looks good (didn't find a black one from market thats why I had to paint it).

3. After its dried put double tape so that it sits firmly on the windscreen.

Have been using it for a week and it works like charm.Go ahead friends remove those ugly stickers from your sweethearts windscreen

Very relevant thread. Those stickers mess up the windshield when they need to be removed. A lazy solution I use is to stick only about the top half of the sticker without peeling the bottom half. If the sticker is of decent quality, you can slowly and carefully peel of the stuck part.
The other thing I do is to stick it at left lowest portion of the windshield so it doesn't hamper the field of view of a co-passenger.

One of the best solution I have found and which works very well is to get cheap iPad or any screen guard of appropriate size. Paste the sticker onto the screenguard and cut it to the size. You can then apply the screenguard on the windshield. The best thing is its transparent and comes out like a charm when you want to remove it.

Try it out

Old thread, resorted to the below method for my wife's new Baleno..

Note: I don't have the patience to go hunting for stuff in the market - prefer things home delivered and sweat-free...

1. Buy this item:

https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1


2. Stick the sticker to the above laminating pouch.

3. Take a cellophane tape and stick the laminating pouch to the windshield.

Done. Peel off cellophane tape when shifting cars.
