See these two expressions:

Every time I park my car here, there are tons of fliers stuck on the windshield when I come back to pick it up.

Every time I park my car here, there are tons of fliers sticking to the windshield when I come back to pick it up.

Are sticking to or stuck on both correct here in this context?

Short answer here: yes! Both are correct. They have no discernable difference in meaning and I'd say either is equally likely to be said. I can't think of any reason why you'd choose one or the other, so use either at will!

    But be careful to distinguish this from being stuck on somebody else, and from sticking it to them! :) – StoneyB May 25 '13 at 21:13
