If my car is impounded and I leave it so they can auction it, will I still owe the accrued fees?

My car was impounded due to traffic violations. I can't afford to retrieve it and the storage fees that are accruing are more than the car is worth. If I decide to let them keep the car and auction it, do I still have to pay for the accrued storage fees prior to the auction? This is in Illinois, Cook County.

If they can auction this for enough money then you should be o.k. If not the balance you will still owe. That car was your responsibility so the bill is yours also. To be safe call and ask the in-pound yard. This can keep you from getting another vehicle or renewing your license.
