REENTRY VEHICLE WINDSHIELD STICKERS
The Atlantic hurricane season begins June 1 and runs through Dec.
1. Don’t wait until hurricane season to get a new reentry sticker,
available to county residents.
Monroe County residents may now obtain one sticker for each registered vehicle by providing proof of residency at a Monroe County Tax Collector’s office. Proof of residency includes a Florida Driver’s License and vehicle registration, or a property bill with an out-of-county vehicle registration for out-of-county residents who own a home in Monroe County.
These stickers make reentry easier if checkpoints are required to assure safe re-entry into the Keys following a destructive storm that causes a public safety issue.
The new system is barcoded with color-coded stickers for zone-by-zone reentry. Lower Keys residents from the south end of the 7 Mile Bridge to Stock Island (MM 40 to MM 4) will be dark pink, Middle Keys residents from the south end of the Long Key Bridge to the north end of the 7 Mile Bridge (MM 64 to MM 47) are aqua, and Upper Keys residents from the county line including Ocean Reef to the north end of the Long Key Bridge (MM 113 to MM 64) will have a purple decal. The City of Key West requires its own sticker, which is white and has not changed. If you already have a City of Key West reentry decal, you do not need to pick up a new one.
Where to get reentry stickers
Residents from Ocean Reef to Stock Island: Stickers are available at the Monroe County Tax Collector’s office locations from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday.
