The 2014 total includes 1,200 claims introduced at Wednesday's Chicago City Council meeting.
The Chicago city clerk processes damage claims of up to $2,000 before passing the claims on to the city council's finance committee. The claims are for damage like flat tires, bent wheel rims and realignments. Drivers need to provide a police report along with a paid repair bill or two estimates. Payments can take up to six months.
