Brookfield vehicle stickers a mess

The Brookfield vehicle stickers are next to impossible to get off and replace. Why don't they use the same adhesive as the resident parking sticker that goes on the back window? That peels right off. The front window stickers are a nightmare to get off. 

Single edge razor blade, can of brake parts cleaner and Windex. Also, received the resident parking sticker for my motorcycle. Where would you like me to stick that? Over the headlight perhaps? What a waste of money. Just a bit more for the landfill I guess. 

Two years ago they wanted me to purchase a vehicle sticker for my race car trailer. They said put it on the right side of the front window. It's a blasted trailer! Come on, Brookfield, get your ducks in a row. You trip over a dollar to save a dime.

LaGrange Park Ace Hardware carries the Sticker Shield. We use it every year and it makes removing the vehicle stickers very easy.

$5 and it is big enough for 2 village stickers. You will never scrape again. I've been using these for years.

Search on Amazon for something like 'Sticker Shield'. It's basically a transparent cling film (like they ought to be) that you stick the Brookfield sticker to and then it's suddenly removable. I cut it to shape once a year and now only ever have two stickers up (my first year that's a Forever There sticker and the current one.)
