Woman Settles $105,000 Parking Ticket Bill

CHICAGO, (UPI) –  A Chicago woman who racked up more than $105,000 in parking ticket fines has reached a settlement with the city, officials said.

Jennifer Fitzgerald’s lawsuit against the city alleged her ex-boyfriend registered the offending vehicle in her name without permission before abandoning it at an O’Hare International Airport parking lot, where it received 678 parking tickets in two years, WBBM-AM, Chicago, reported Thursday.

Fitzgerald’s attorney said the car was not towed for 2 1/2 years and should have been removed far earlier.

A judge tossed out Fitzgerald’s lawsuit in April and urged the two sides to reach a settlement.

Fitzgerald has now agreed to pay a reduced bill of $4,470, officials said.

Fitzgerald’s suspended driver’s license will be returned to her when she pays off the fine. Her ex-boyfriend has agreed to contribute $1,600 toward the sum.
