Q. I got a parking ticket notice in the mail on a vehicle that I sold a couple years ago. I don't even know who owns it now. Why would JPD still have it under my name and is it my responsibility to pay for whoever owns the truck now?


Dear Juneau Resident,

JPD gets its information about registered owners from DMV. If you did not submit a notice of transfer and the new owner did not register the vehicle, you are still the registered owner. What you can do now is go to DMV and fill out a form that provides the name of the person you sold the vehicle to, and JPD will treat that person as the registered owner.

This issue comes up frequently. Anyone selling a vehicle should remember, especially if the plates don't expire for awhile, that the new owner may violate the law and not register the vehicle. Sellers should file the transfer pending form immediately to remove the seller's name.
