My problem with e-toll

26 January 2014, 21:30

Let me first calm everybody’s nerves here for a second… I’m NOT tagged, I use the high/freeway like always and will do so for some time to come (will explain just now), will NOT pay and yes I sleep well at night. After three or* four **stiff Whiskies anyone can do so.

I do however feel the urge to confess to you that I’m contemplating getting tagged by the year 3042, which by sheer coincidence will see me celebrating my 1083 birthday. You are definitely invited, no jokes. (I like playing things safe)

Here is my problem though: By law I’m not forced to be tagged, right… right. By that same law I’m also not refused the use of those high/freeways that I’ve always been using right… right.

Here is where it starts getting messy.

See when I use those said high/freeways, scamral wants to send me a bill. So the moment I’ve passed under a gantry, scamral has given me CREDIT, which by the by I do not qualify for (‘cause I’m soooo in the sheet as it is), without doing the prescribed credit checks all and all. The question that now comes to mind (mine anyway… and no I’m not near any Whisky!!... bloody agent!) is, are they, being scamral that is, registered credit providers?

With all the ever present T’s & C’s, see…

Now I just want call for some caution here by saying don’t take my word for this, because I’m not a force to be reckoned with on legal matters. I’m just saying. However should there be any substance to my pondering this issue, I fully give OUTA all the rights (T’s & C’s apply see) and privileges to this to use as they see fit or not, depending on for a good cause or not, with or without my knowledge (see T’s & C’s) with the single exception that it only be used to bring scamral down

*four : the fourth Whisky as defined below, however not meant for people other than old farts.

**stiff Whiskies: 1st - tall glass or any other large container filled with ice (make sure it cannot take                        another cube of ice) then pour Whisky until glass/container is filled a third of its                                             capacity. Top up with water.

                                2nd – same as above except fill half way with Whisky. Remember to top up with                                              water

                                3rd -  same as the 2nd one. Remember the water.

                                4th – As mentioned this is strictly for old farts. Fill with ice as                               per previous. Now fill three quarters with Whisky and top up with water.
