    Default Fined for over staying my welcome in a motorway service area

    I have just recieved a letter saying I have been fined (£60) for over staying my welcome in a motorway service area. I was over the time limit, but the question is do I pay up or tell them to Jog on. The services were at Hamilton on the M74 north bound. What do you guys think?

    From what I've heard only Councils can enforce parking fines. Think Money Saving Expert may have done something related to this.

    What exactly do they class as "overstaying your welcome"? Can't say I've ever heard of that, although I suppose they possibly need to impose something to avoid commuters dumping their cars and car sharing etc.

    Anything over 2 hours in most service areas is classed as being over the time limit.
