An Atlanta motorist says ParkAtlanta is issuing him fines for vehicles he does not own. Jim Christians says that when he's tried to straighten the matter out he gets the runaround from the company.
Christians said that the problems go back 14 months and he says he's sick of it.
He said ParkAtlanta officials told him that the ticket was for a Honda Civic; he has a Toyota Lexus. He said that the only thing that seems to match up with notices is the vanity plate that he's had since 1966. The plate is the letter "C", which stands for Christians last name.
ParkAtlanta, the private company responsible for parking enforcement in the city of Atlanta, acknowledged the mistake in the February 2012 notice. However, Christians said that the same kind of thing is happening frequently.
Christians said that the notice said that his car could be impounded if his car is stopped for any violation.
A ParkAtlanta official told FOX 5 that there was an input error done by several parking clerks. That official said that Christians will be getting an apology and a clean ticket record.
