Punitive parking charge
My daughter has been given a ticket for overstaying by 6 minutes in a car park in Exeter "policed" by Premier Parking solutions. It is for £100 reduced to £75 if paid within 7 days.

Personally I believe either sum is punitive and suspect if she offers - say - £40 then they may well drop the matter. Do you agree?
