"If you breach a contract then under contract law that company is only allowed to make a claim for the amount they have actually lost." [Michael Green quoted in the Daily Mail]

But is ParkingEye claiming breach of contract or is it invoicing you for the charge that the contract specifies you should pay? 

Anyway, Michael Green hasn't yet decided whether to go ahead with his ambitious challenge. 

The law was changed in the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012, which prevented private parking companies clamping or removing vehicles.  But on the other hand the companies were given additional rights including the ability to obtain the registered keeper's name and address from DVLA, and to pursue the keeper if they are unable to identify the driver.

If you went over the free parking limit because of delays in Morrison's, it might be worth asking them to arrange to cancel the PCN.  It will be their loss of business if you decide to shop elsewhere because of the charge.  Has anyone had any success doing that?
