E-Tolls, It will be the end of all hope.

09 January 2014, 15:24
I hear a lot of stories about people being threatened with vandalism because they bought E-Tags, and I find these absolutely appalling.

No one has the right to Vandalise anyone's property because of the fact that they bought an E-Tag. Believe me , the hell that SANRAL's billing system will cause them is punishment enough.


Well, I do not support vandalism simply because someone bought an E-Tag. Don't get me wrong, I strongly believe that anyone who decides to get tagged is insane.

All you have to do to see why it is a horrible idea is browse HelloPeter for SANRAL complaints and see the misery and frustration SANRAL's incompetence has caused.

I fully intend to pay my Toll bill as soon as I receive a detailed invoice in the post, listing every single gantry pass I made with photographic evidence for every single gantry pass. Short of that I will refuse to pay as I have no way of ascertaining whether the amount owed is accurate.

I will never register with SANRAL, as their T's & C's are bloody ridiculous, and I believe the whole E-Tolling system to be unconstitutional, and detrimental to the welfare of the people of South Africa.

It will cause the price of basic necessities to sky-rocket, which will lead to more unemployment, which in turn leads to more money spent on welfare projects, which in turn will lead to more money being allocated from funds that were supposed to go towards road maintenance and other essential projects.

The whole thing is a disaster in the making, and the powers that be does not seem to care about the damage they cause. All they see is the dollar signs in front of their eyes, not caring about how their decisions affect the people they are supposed to govern.

If E-Tolls are not stopped, it will be the beginning of the end for South Africa. Thing will spiral downwards, until there is nothing left but another flat-broke, African country where poverty, starvation and death is the daily norm.

Please people, let's stand together and stop this madness, we - the people of South Africa are burdened enough, we don't need another TAX to pay. And to add insult to injury - a TAX with VAT added on top of it.
