A Conversation for Challenging a Parking Ticket Issued in the UK

To challenge or not to challenge?

Recently received a penalty charge notice due to 'parking in a pay & display car park without clearly displaying a valid pay & display ticket'.

The reason for this - the (pay & display) ticket was blown face down as I shut my car door.
Obviously, I had not realised that the ticket had blown face down, as I normally place the ticket on the dashboard, close the door, and walk away towards my place of work.

The ticket didn't even have a sticky bit where I could put it on the windscreen, and although it being a relatively windy day, I did not anticipate my (pay & display) ticket to land in such a way as to result in receiving a PCN.

Is it even worth my time trying to challenge the PCN, or, as suggested, just give up and fork out the cash to end this episode?

I've just discovered that I'm subscribed to this forum. I'd forgotten that. Theoretically, this is the best place to discuss this. In practice, you'll get far more responses if you post at <./>Askh2g2</.> with a link back to this conversation.

I'm Irish, and can't think of anything more useful to say. I know no more of this subject than what I've read in the above article.
