My boyfriend and I are having the same problem, we received a parking charge notice from a company called parking eye on a car park down on a retail park in Bradford. We didn't realise there were restrictions as there was no pay and display sign and the carpark caters to a number of shops. The letter we received demands £100 in damages for spending 50 mins over the 3hrs parking limit on the free car park. There are pictures of our car entering and leaving, on the day in question the car park was at most half full. We were originally advised to ignore the 1st letter however they are now threatening bailiff action. Do we pay the charge, either way £100 seems highly excessive for going 50 mins over on a free car park on a day midweek when the shopping park was quiet??
