Folha OnLine says the accumulated fines for speeding and running red lights total 3.4 million reals (US$1.9 million).
Silva says he never received the tickets because he was always too busy to register the car in his name.
The car is worth about US$6,600, Folha OnLine reported Thursday. It was impounded and will be auctioned unless Silva comes up with the money he owes.
