    I believe that the European Court has ruled that the threat of escalation of parking fines for free private parking overstay if not paid within a certain time has been ruled illegal. Is this the case?

    This is from the RAC's report (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-31545417) which says:

    'The report also said European legislation, which requires contracts to be fair, meant so-called "early payment discounts" of penalty charges could also be unlawful because they constitute a "price escalation clause'

    Note the use of the word 'could' but there is no harm in adding this to any appeal / defence.
