Whether I need to pay a Parking Charge Notice

Customer Question

Whether I need to pay a Parking Charge Notice for exceeding my time (30 minutes) on a private car park
JA: The Traffic Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: TBH I'm a bit inclined to pay up, I was at fault - but I was just browsing the net for advice
JA: Is there anything else the Traffic Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: I don't think so ... I bought a 2 hour ticket and came back after 2.5 hrs. ticket is £60 with a threat to increase to £100 if I don't pay by the 14th
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Traffic Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

Sorry for the delay.Are you prepared to risk being sued?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've not exactly been watching you terribly closely! ... I think my irritation is that a car park charges £1 an hour and then £60 for a 20 minute overstay. This feels disproportionate - would it be a reasonable course of action to send them half?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Yes, I understand but are you prepared to risk being sued?
