Seven principles of the new e-tolls

The SA government outlined seven ways the new e-tolls dispensation will improve the lives of motorists.

1. Registration of drivers:

All cars are deemed registered, but direct registration users will benefit, while indirectly registered motorists will pay more when they renew their licenses at traffic license centres or the Post Office.

2. E-tag tariffs:

All users with e-tags and Sanral accounts will pay:

Class A1 (motorcycles): 18c/km

Class A2 (light vehicles): 30c/km

Class B (medium heavy vehicles): 75c/km

Class C (large heavy vehicles): 150c/km

3. Reduced monthly cap for all users:

Class A1 (motorcycles): R125 (down from R280, 50% discount)

Class A2 (light vehicles): R225 (down from R450, 50% discount)

Class B (medium heavy vehicles): R875 (down from R1750, 50% discount)

Class C (large heavy vehicles): R2 900 (down from R3 500, 17% discount)

4. Infrequent users:

Should visitors only visit Gauteng once or twice a year, they would not pay any toll fees as the first 30 gantry passes in a year are free. Payment is only due on the 31st gantry pass, which will include the cost of the preceding 30 gantry passes.

5. Limit travel cost:

For users who do not pay within 30 days of invoice, they will be liable for double the toll tariff, but new monthly caps will apply as follows:

Class A1 (motorcycles): R250

Class A2 (light vehicles): R450

Class B (medium heavy vehicles): R1 750

Class C (large heavy vehicles): R5 800

6. Discount for outstanding debt:

The discount will be reduced from R1.74/km to 70c/km, a 60% deduction in the discount for outstanding e-toll bills since December 2013. There is no amnesty.

7. Compliance:

Failure to pay tolls will result in motorists’ license discs not being issued until such point as their debt has been repaid.
