Lori Luxenberg Challinor of Roselle and her husband are reeling from an unexpected bill from the tollway for violations of about $10,000 on their Dodge Caravan. Problem is, the couple no longer own the Caravan — they sold it several years ago to an acquaintance who turned around and resold it to some unsavory characters. They, in turn, took the van on the adventure of a lifetime that included running red lights and skipping tolls. Compounding matters is the fact the couple didn’t obtain a title transfer document although they have the bill of sale.
“The police visited us and accepted the bill of sale as proof that we did not own the vehicle at the time it embarked on a life of crime,” she wrote. “However, all of our attempts to deal with the Illinois toll authority, and they have been ongoing and numerous, have been futile. They will not accept any proof of the sale, saying that only the title mattered. My husband has taken numerous days off work in attempts to deal with this in person to no avail. We accept that we erred in the transfer of the title but do not feel our entire life should be ruined due to a bureaucratic mistake on the sale of a $500 vehicle.”
