Re: Statute of Limitation on Court Fines
My point is, if on the date that the citation(s) was issued the sale had not been reported to the proper authority, it will be the registered owner's responsibility to pay or dispute a "parking type ticket". But in addition to your presumption that it was a parking citation (or one which was issued while the vehicle was parked), it is also possible for it to have been issued to the registered owner of the vehicle even if it was driven by somebody else... So again, hypothetically, you sold it and mailed the papers, the buyer got caught driving it unregistered/un-inspected, the citing officer opted to cite the registered owner instead of the driver/buyer.
In either of those cases, and assuming you had not submitted a change of address or a forwarding address, any subsequent late notices issued shortly thereafter, were un-deliverable.
I understand the difficulty in remembering... It is possible that the buyer had to submit something, a fee was required... In the least, it is obvious that he slacked on inspecting and registering the vehicle.
Proceed as you wish... I simply posted a hypothetical possibility that was not covered in previous posts!
Please do.... Good luck!
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
