Bogota, Colombia’s Mobility Department is reportedly preparing to impound 36,842 vehicles and 2125 homes because the owners have failed to pay a total of about 560 billion pesos (more than US$309.6 million).
Ana Luisa Flechas, Bogota’s Secretary of Mobility, told MSN Colombia citizens have the option of approaching the Mobility Dept. and arranging some sort of payment plans.
Should owners fail to pay these fines, the Mobility Department says they will impound the cars, take over the homes, and possibly auction them off.
About 400 thousand citizens owe the Mobility Department money.
