I recieved a parking charge notice from smart park with

Customer Question

Hi, I recieved a parking charge notice from smart park with regard to a car park in Whitby. What happened was i woke up with an eye infection and was directed to a chemist shop in whitby as i was staying close by. There was a carpark so me and my wife pulled into the carpark but unfortunately there where no spaces available. I jumped out and went to the chemist while my wife waited for a space to become free. she drove round a couple of three times but no space had become free, and by then i was back from the shop so we left. They charged 85.00 and i expalined all this to them which they were not prepared to accept. we were only there 11 mins and now they are threatening us with court action if we now dont pay 160.00. My argument with them is to pay for a parking ticket then one must surely be parked as to park means to leave the vehicle in a parking space. I explained that my wife waited with the car for a space.surely one is allowed to wait for a space without prejudice or consequence. Some advice on this would be much appreciated please.
