I hope you do not have problems with USC selling their uncollectable debt to a debt collection agency. That is what happened to me.
I would send a certified, notarized statement to the Transportion Services telling them that you don't own the vehicle, haven't owned the vehicle since February, that you filed the necessary paperwork with the DMV, that you are not responsible for the tickets, and give them the address of the new owner.
Make it clear that you expect them to clear this up, and you do not wish to hear from them again unless it is to acknowledge that they received your statement.
TRY EMPATHY & HAVE LOVE IN YOUR HEART, PERHAPS I'LL SEE YOU ON THE ROAD...
