Violations Processing Centre

23 July 2014, 14:29

I find it very interesting, having moved to Cape Town, not just to avoid E-Tolls, that when I received my first ever E-Toll bill it is issued by the “Violations Processing Centre”.

My problem with this is the following:

I was travelling from Punda Maria to Leeudoringstad using the N1.  After countless toll gates before arriving in Pretoria/Tshwane you are then bombarded with e-toll gantries every few kilometres all the way to Lenasia.

As I had no idea how much this would cost I decided to wait for SANRAL to send me an invoice and request for payment.

I have committed no crime.  I made use of public roads and drove in a legal and careful fashion.

Why then am I being accused of “violations”?

Has SANRAL actually decided that everyone that has not submitted to their E-Tag is a criminal and that using the freeways in Gauteng (Not for free) without an E-Tag is there for a violoation?

I object most strongly, as a visitor to Gauteng, that I am treated as a “Violater”.

SANRAL get your act together.  Your “Violation Processing Centre” is nothing other than a Debtor’s department similar to any other business.

Cape Town City Council do not consider me to be in violation unless I fail to pay my Rates & Taxes.  Even then you don’t get your first account from a “Violation Processing Centre”.

No wonder the public look at this and say “ENOUGH"
