Get e-tolls OUTA here!

15 August 2012, 11:30

We South Africans are notorious for being indifferent towards important national issues that affect us all.  Well now’s the time to stop being apathetic and make a stand!

The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance – OUTA – has been working hard behind the scenes for the last few months as they prepare to take on the ANC regime and their punitive e-tolling system in Gauteng.

Since their court interdict, OUTA has been able to shelve the e-tolling project and the constitutional battle over its validity, is about to begin.

Let’s be honest about this, this is not an OUTA initiative, with OUTA standing alone against heavy opposition from the ANC regime.  No, this is a battle which affects all of us, and we all need to get involved and contribute.

So far, we’ve all benefited from OUTA’s stand and those of us highway users have probably saved in excess of R 1000 since e-tolling was halted. 

The point is this; OUTA has only managed to raise half of the funds they need for their court battle.  While we all are enjoying our new, free highways, OUTA has carried the legal costs on their own, with minimal contributions from the public or big business.

This is simply not good enough.

We seldom get involved, unfortunately, but this court battle against this punitive system should be enough to get us off our lazy butts and join OUTA in this fight, which is really our collective battle.

It’s time to put our money where our mouths are, time to make a stand and rally together.  This is a worthy cause, and a fight worth fighting. 

Don’t wait for the next person to do something.  You do something!  You and me.  Today! 

R 200 per person should be more than enough to pay for the legal muscle we need to fight this battle.  Let’s contribute to the legal costs and win this thing!
