Chicago’s Department of Finance states Jennifer Fitzgerald owes the money for 678 parking fines after a 1999 Chevrolet Monte Carlo registered in her name was left at the city’s O’Hara Airport…
Yet Ms Fitzgerald claims she has never owned or driven the car and that her ex-boyfriend Brandon Preveau, a United Airlines employee, registered it in her name without her knowledge. She said he parked the car at the airport in Parking Lot E, which is reserved for United employees, in November 2009
Apparently the car should have been towed after 30 days. But it was three years before it was impounded, and just kept racking up fines in the interim.
Since the registered owner of the vehicle is unemployed, it’s unlikely that the fines will be collected I imagine.
