If your car is leased then its relatively easy to get charges cancelled as most companies don't obtain the information required under the Protection of Freedom Act to enforce.

I personally would ring the pub and explain what has happened hopefully you paid by card for the food etc. If not as its £45 id just pay it and write to Wetherspoons explaining what happened.

You could try saying that when you went to the matchstick men at salford keys only the week before the carpark that it is on has signs saying you must pay to park within the carpark unless you are frequenting there pub it is sectioned off but would be easy to park in the wrong one. May not work but worth a try> Also the signs for the pub you went to says 2hrs maximum stay Not long if when you arrive have a drink whilst deciding what you want to eat and have acpouple of drinks if you have a designated driver.

Clearly nobody here has ever worked in law.

For the record, it's the registered keeper who's liable and it takes about 3 seconds to issue proceedings.

Getting to court is a different matter but burying your head in the sand will lead to trouble.

It's nothing to do with Wetherspoons and from experience as I said in an earlier post I would smile and pay up otherwise it will probably become more expensive for you.

Citizens' Advice Bureau doesn't think so. They think it's the driver, not the owner.

I wonder who is liable if a different driver drives it out of the car park from the one who drove it in. If I drive my car to Wetherspoon's and have a few drinks and pass the keys to my hypothetical wife, who drives it out an hour over time, who is liable?

The driver is responsible but if the Parking Parking Companies follow the correct procedures and issue the correct paperwork in a timely manner liability can be passed to the registered keeper in England and Wales,
This does not apply in Scotland so unless the PPC can prove who was driving at the time nothing will ever get to court,

Totally agree with beddie that it’s nothing to do with Wetherspoons. You will find very much the same at supermarkets, that they don’t run their own car parks. I know that’s the case with Tesco & Sainsbury’s in Burnley.

Someone mentioned the Queen Vic further up the thread. You have to register at the bar now but there is still a time limit.

Many a national multisite business contracts out the management of their car parks to a 3rd party. Where a 'customer' has overstayed the time limit displayed, redress is usually best achieved by contacting the manager of the premises involved.
Branch managers usually have a procedure for dealing with their contractors on behalf of their customer in such cases.
