This article was basically written by someone in April 2013 (thanks whoever it was), but the main points bear repeating here, now that Sanral is getting itself into ever more and more of a financial and admin mess. And I have updated it to our current circumstances. 1) Do NOT buy an e-tag. Only if we are suckered into buying e-tags will their system work. If you buy an e-tag, you will give the (ANC) comrades permission to debit your bank account and you will become an e-slave. 2) Ignore any invoices posted to you. If you use e-tolled roads, Sanral will HAVE to issue an invoice. Assuming 100 000 non-e-tagged cars use the tolled highways a day, Sanral will have to issue 100 000 invoices a day. And a posted invoice has no validity, so chuck it away when you receive it. 3) Ignore any registered letters. When you get the slip and see it is from Sanral, throw it away. They will then be forced to issue a court summons. 4) By now (January 2014) Sanral have a backlog of literally millions of invoices/summonses. Summonses cost a lot of money to deliver. And Scamral are already going down the tubes financially. So it is extremely unlikely you will ever be summonsed. And if you are ever stopped on the road for not having an e-tag, that is totally illegal. We are NOT forced by law to have one. And if you have any trouble, phone The Justice Project at 087 809 0399. That's it, people. The whole e-tag scam was foisted on us by a corrupt ANC govt who thought it would be a marvellous way of making big bucks for their pockets, not for fixing our roads. Instead it has backfired on the ANC in the most gratifying way. Because it's time we apathetic South Africans, who pay the bills to run this country, stand up and FIGHT for our rights. And that time is NOW!
