E-Tolls: Don't become an e-Slave

16 April 2013, 08:24

A minority of South Africans fund the bloated extravagant and corrupt ANC government who have an ever increasing appetite to milk this minority to pay for their outrageous salaries, bling mansions, cars, cellphones, designer suits, private jets, first class overseas junkets and holiday homes. E-Tolls are just another tax to be imposed upon us to fund projects for which money was available but has been misappropriated.


SANRAL will probably attempt in the coming months to implement e-Tolls. Now is our chance to fight back for our freedoms against tax tyranny and theft. The e-Toll system is totally flawed and we need to exploit those flaws to bring the system down. Here is how.


STEP 1: DO NOT BUY AN E-TAG


Do not under any circumstances buy an e-Tag. Only if we are suckered into buying e-Tags will their system work. If you buy an e-Tag you give the comrades permission to debit your bank account and you will become an e-Slave. They will be able to fiddle the tolls and simply suck increasing amounts out of your bank account.


STEP 2: IGNORE ANY INVOICES POSTED TO YOU.


If you land up using the tolled road and you don't have an e-Tag then SANRAL will have to issue and send you an invoice. Assume 100000 motorists use the toll roads without e-Tags then SANRAL will have to issue 100000 invoices. The only way they can get it to you is via a totally inefficient, unreliable ANC degraded postal service. Many invoices will simply not arrive, people will have moved, etc., and even if you do get one you can safely just ignore it. A posted invoice has no validity.


STEP 3: IGNORE ANY REGISTERED LETTERS


By now the deadline for payment of e-Tolls for Month 1 will have passed and SANRAL will now have to send out 100000 registered letters. When you get the registered letter slip and you see it is from SANRAL then throw it away. If you are unsure then go to the Post Office and ask to see the letter. If the sender is SANRAL then do not sign the slip but tell the clerk to return it to sender. Even if you do sign for the registered letter from SANRAL then just ignore their demands for payment. I still has no validity. They will then be forced to issue a court summons. So make them issue a summons.


By now we will be well into Month 2 and SANRAL is now going to be doing STEP 2 for Month 2. Their collection systems will already be under severe strain, the costs of collection sky rocketing and they will have not collected any money.


STEP 4: WAIT FOR THE SHERIFF


Now SANRAL will have to issue summons to the 100000 motorists who did not but e-Tags. Assuming each summons takes only 15 minutes to deliver (Assuming everyone would be at home) then one Sheriff can issue 28 summons in a 7 hour working day.


100000 divided by 28 = 3571 Sheriffs.


Assuming they can find 3571 sheriffs and the sheriff calls and you are at home. You accept the summons which will demand payment. You can now either pay or decide to go to court. If only 10% decide to go to court then SANRAL will have find 10000 court dates in an already stressed and ANC rubbished justice system.


By this time we would be well into Month 4. SANRAL will have 4 months of collections, invoices, registered letter, sheriffs and court dates and still no money and the costs of administration will be burying the whole project.


Guys. It is that easy. We can destroy this nonsense now. But we only have one chance.


BUT WHAT IF I DON'T USE AN E-TOLLED ROAD?


Maybe now you don't but you can be sure that if the ANC succeeds with e-Tolls in Gauteng they will extend the system to roads all around the country. And the cost of everything you buy will be increased by e-tolls on deliveries and the cost of doing business. So even if you are not directly affected you can still help to pull down the system. When e-tolls are introduced take a short drive between two junctions on an e-Tolled road and run up a bill for R10 to R20 every month. No sit back and wait for STEP 2 and see if they can afford to collect.


DO NOT BECOME AN E-SLAVE.

DO NOT BUY AN E-TAG.

BURY THE SCHEME NOW – ONCE AND FOR ALL.
