parking tickets 225x300 Woman Fights $105,000 Worth of TicketsA Chicago woman is trying to get the city to forgive a hundred thousand dollars’ worth of parking tickets.

The tickets — which total more than $105,000 — were racked up when her boyfriend abandoned her car at O’Hare Airport, CBSChicago is reporting.

According to the woman, police continued writing tickets on the vehicle over a period of three years — eventually, the tickets reached a six-figure total. The woman has sued the city to eliminate the tickets but a judge rejected her suit and encouraged the two parties to find a solution.

According to a website that tracks tickets, the city offered to accept $2,500 to pay off the tickets but the woman refused, citing an inability to pay.
