Was it a Council issued ticket or from a private company? Look carefully at the ticket, is it a "proper" parking ticket issued by a council waller, or is it an invoice impersonating a proper ticket. 2 very different beasts when it comes to dealing with them.

Indeed!
When my daughter got clamped sometime ago,and Bullied into paying a 95 fine (in cash!) by the local Cowboy Clamping Jerks....given she had permission,an appointment at a local authority office as part of her Teaching job....Her mistake??..She'forgot to sign in!!
As luck would have it,my son knew a former employee who used his Gym...he told us who ran the show,and where he opperated from.
Glad to say...We got her money back!

i.e., it is A Naughty Thing to do in its own right!
Its called 'quitting' and on a road carries IIRC a 30 penalty.
Can result in your car being stolen & your insurers will then refuse to pay out.

Yes, except the OP didn't actually say that he left his car running while unattended...

I've just used the same template after being on a motorway services beyond 2 hours case closed no fine 😄. If it's a private company not council as Dave says different beast this template works

It was parking eye that got me if that helps

My wife parked in an out of town shopping centre for longer than 3 hours in my car while I was in the USA. I got an official looking ticket - but it wasn't. I ignored their increasingly threatening letters (about 8 over many months - even solicitor looking ones) before they went away. Wife was freaking out over it, but I really wanted them to take me to court, but of course why would they?

The advice I got at the time was that as a private company just ignore it. They have no authority to compel you to say who was driving etc.

That was last year though - and it was a free car park (upto 3 hours). Yours sounds like a Pay and Display, which I assume is a different matter.
