In 2017, there were 5.4mn private parking tickets issued. In the same period there were some 8,000 court hearings with many, many claims being thrown out well before the court hearing stage. So you have well under a 1% chance (1 in 100) of getting a court claim and even less likley to go to court.
There is no commercial logic, and parking operators cannot recover costs of going to court, the only purpose of doing so is to create the illusion of the justification of their case.
