An open letter to SANRAL

21 January 2014, 09:18

Dear SANRAL, as much as I am a law abiding citizen who does their best to stay on the correct side of the law, I have a few concerns that I hope you will truthfully answer so that I may stay a law abiding citizen.

Violation: to break of fail to comply with a rule or formal agreement; treat with disrespect. This is the definition according to the Concise English Oxford Dictionary. Please explain to me what I have violated when travelling on the tolled roads of Gauteng? If an e-tag was necessary, legal, then why do you have rates for those with and those without? Based on this it is not a rule or formal agreement. Please stop sending me paper work from the Violation Processing Centre until such time as I have violated anything.

As I have stated, I am a law abiding citizen living in the Gauteng Province. As I might visit Johannesburg and environs once a quarter I do not find it necessary to purchase an e-tag. However, how do you get it right to send me three invoices, first on 16th January 2014 and the last two on 18th January 2014, payable by 17th January 2014? As the registration numbers are from one of the only two provinces remaining who still use the old numbering system, how did you manage to use my address? I will quite willing pay these tolls as soon as the three vehicles are delivered to my address failing which, I shall simply ignore them.

The rip off of 250% is really astounding. How do you legally justify that?

Thanking you, Irish Mike.
