This is Fairfax county Virginia. Lady asked me for advice so posting here. She has a spare car parked on the street with legal tags but expired inspection sticker because it's not currently running. It was impounded a few days ago. Fees more than car worth in current condition but she doesn't want to see it scraped. I'd pay about $300 and could fix it. The impound lot said instead of paying the fees, she just pay them $400 and give them the title. Otherwise the state or county will come after her for some abandoned car statute. I think they are bluffing. I don't think they would get more that $150 out of it from auction and I never heard of the state going after people like that. What at the options here? I suggested she offer $400 to get the car out or just walk away.
