    APCOA Rail parking notice - where do I stand?

    APCOA Rail parking notice - where do I stand? 4th Sep 12 at 1:19 AM
    Where do I stand on this one?

    The train station car park was full and I had to catch the train. With no time to find anywhere else I parked my car in a non-marked area within the car park. I paid my car park ticket as normal and thought it would be OK.

    It was tucked away and not obstructing anything or anyone. You could get a lorry past where i parked!

    I DO realize I parked in non-marked bay, but since I didn't obstruct anything I'm dubious if I'm liable to pay this charge? If I was the car park owner I would have made where I parked into a space!

    It says "APCOA Civil Parking Notice" on the piece of paper. 80 charge or 50 if I pay within 14 days.

    I read something that privat car park companies cannot fine me since there's no written contract. But I also read that the law might change in 2012.

    Any expert on the matter which can shed some light on what I should do?

    Thanks in advance.
