    10 years ago when living in Chicago I recieved 3 parking tickets that I never paid. Now Chicago has hired a law firm to track me down in California to collect $270. I'm not the terrible person it sounds like, they were for not having a front license plate!
    Of course the threats are to garnish wages,... put this on my credit report,...etc.
    Is there not a statute of limitations on these types of things? can they affect my credit report at this late time? (I thought not after 7 years)

    Q: Is there not a statute of limitations on these types of things?

    A: Yes and it stopped running the instant you got the ticket.



    Q: can they affect my credit report at this late time?

    A: Yes.

    They can put it on your credit report but you can have it taken off. You can ignore them. They are not coming to CA to sue you and CA will not suspend your drivers license.

    This is good to know. I always fear that my old parking tickets I got in [name of city deleted] when I was going to [name of law school deleted] will pop up.

    I mean...my FRIEND's tickets.
