I got a parking ticket from euro car parks parking charge

Customer Question

I got a parking ticket from euro car parks for a parking charge notice which I received for overstaying a free car park with a 3 hour limit I've been told to ignore, but now have had 3 letters through the post one being from debt recovery plus, but they are addressed to Mr.white and Mr. Daisy White where no one registered to the car is Mr white it is miss white if this makes any difference. Any information on what to do would be much appreciated.

Are you asking if you are liable?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yeah can I just ignore the letters as the title the letters are addressed to are Mr instead of miss, or do I have to pay £150 for overstaying accidentally at a free car park which I use all the time

The prefix to your name is ***** ***** issue.

Are you prepared to risk being sued?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That depends as I've read online it will go to small claims court so the most that will happen is I will have to pay the remaining sum? Is this true?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If I just ignore the letters what is the worst that can happen
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, they would only get the sum of the fine plus £35 in court cost and £50 fixed solicitors costs.

It isn't really cost effective for them to sue so they do not generally but they could.

They will not get their debt collection costs.

I would never pay the fine but then I suppose I am happy to risk being sued.

Can I clarify anything for you?
