Roads infrastructure in the modern world is a BASIC HUMAN RIGHT.
It is like food, water, shelter... In the modern world roads deliver these services to everyone. Sure, there has to be funds to pay for all this development and upkeep. But that is why there are taxes and in our case in South Africa, a fuel levy as well.
Don't be fooled and think only the Gauteng roads will be E-Tolled. It is coming to all the major cities and probably other major routes...EXISTING ROADS are going to be E-Tolled if we as a nation do not stop this blatant abuse of our basic rights.
SANRAL is a private company owned by the South African government. How is it possible that a private company can have so much "power" over the SA citizens? Only because of a dictator-like government bullying it's citizenry.
We need to collectively resist this abuse of our basic rights, everyone, does not matter your race, creed or political allegiance. E-Tolls are one of the greatest scams of all time!
UN-VOTE the current dictatorship for a better and prosperous South Africa!!!
