Woman sues after abandoned car accumulates over $100,000 in parking tickets
 
A Chicago woman is fighting back after her abandoned car racked up over $100,000 worth of fines for sitting in a parking lot at O'Hare Airport for over three years.
MyFoxChicago.com reports that police officers continued to write Jennifer Fitzgerald tickets for abandoning her vehicle and parking in a city lot for over 30 days, even though the city is supposed to tow vehicles after that time.
Fitzgerald claims she sold the car to her then-boyfriend Brandon Preveau for $600, and he also picked up the costs for insurance and license plates. She said she tried to transfer the title, but admits the car was still in her name.
Fitzgerald claims Preveau, a United Airlines employee, abandoned the car in an employee parking lot where she did not have access to it, and it began accumulating tickets.

Both the city and Preveau dispute Fitzgerald's account. A law department spokesman tells MyFoxChicago.com that the car was moved a number of time in the lot during the three-year-period.
"A stack of tickets was not accruing on the vehicle," the spokesman said.
Preveau's lawyer tells MyFoxChicago.com his client should not be held responsible, because he did not own the car.
"The title was never in his name and the license plates were never in his name either," Matt Prengaman said.
Fitzgerald and her attorney declined to speak with MyFoxChicago.com, saying they would like to let the lawsuit speak for itself.

The vehicle should have been towed, impounded and auctioned off long ago. 3 years is pathetic. She's banking the City forcibly collects on the tickets, but she wins the civil lawsuit offsetting the tickets.

Lesson to all - never leave a vehicle in your name anywhere without relinquishing own-ship to the property.
