But why though bud? It’s not even the parking companies car park!

Which is exactly why I've never been caught out and try hard to make sure I don't, I do see where your coming from and I respect your opinion but if I fell fowl of the posted conditions the chances are I wouldn't consider it a fight worth having !

Having said that, if I did get caught I suppose there is a chance I might feel very differently ?

It's good to see so many on here quite willing to fail to comply with restrictions yet blame the company and refuse to pay

Or potentially let's just make up a lie, hit them with a sob story and see if they'll waive the charge

I get it if you had done nothing wrong but if you get 2 hours to park and it's clear you will be fined if you stay longer then if you stay longer why shouldn't you be charged??

If you parked in a council run pay and display car park and paid for 1 hours parking but stayed for over an hour you could ecpect an additional charge so why not on private ground???

Fair play to the OP who admits to overstaying meaning the fine is technically correct and is going to pay.

Not atall, but what I am is honest and if I'm in the wrong i hold my hands up.

Could I have avoided all this by being abit more observant of the time I paid for?

Absolutely yes.

I just don't see the point in trying to weedle out of it when they have proof I'm in the wrong.

But it isn’t the shop/McDonalds getting the “fine”, in fact of course it isn’t a “fine” at all, another 3rd party , who does naff all is robbing you, would you not rather give the “fine” to the McDonals kids charity?

Absolutely I don't want to pay it, it's extortionate to say £60 for 15 minutes over what I paid for. There is no shops involved, it was a beach car park. I've never put myself in this position and I wont again. Lesson learnt the hard way!

Apologies for the McDonald's confusion, that came from someone else in the thread saying they'd had one from there!!

No problem my friend. To be fair I never actually stated what type of car park it was which proberbly added to the condfusion/assumptions.
