Government has proposed that toll fees for e-tag users be capped at R550 a month for light vehicles, Transport Minister Ben Martins said on Friday.
“Registering for an e-tag account will provide users with the lowest possible toll fees,” he told reporters in Pretoria.
“Following the consultations, we have lowered tariffs, reduced caps in all categories, offered discounts on tagged vehicles and during peak hours, and exemptions on public transport.”
According to a Sanral presentation there were three different tariffs for different class of vehicles.
The standard tariff for a normal car, or Class A vehicle, was 58c/km.
The e-tag tariff was based on 30c/km.
