If your administrative hearing is lost, the city is often willing to waive the impound storage fees in exchange for title to the car. However, the city commonly still requires payment of the actual violation fine amount, the tow cost, and the first day of storage fee. It is up to the city to decide if the title of the car can be signed over in exchange for the impound storage fees. Ask for more information at the Department of Streets & Sanitation counter at 121 N LaSalle St #1107, Chicago, IL 60602.
