The Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) company, which is operating the Gauteng e-toll system, said it will start issuing the first summons to collect outstanding e-toll fees within the next two weeks.

Engineering News reported that ETC CEO Jamie Surkont said “there is an obligation to collect the debt and that is what we are going to do”.

ETC COO Mark Ridgway added that they will focus on “those who wittingly refuse to pay, with so-called non-responders second on the list”.

Htxt reported that “some of those summons will go to the High Court because the amount owed is over R400 000, even after the 60% discount”.

“Other summons will go to the Magistrate’s Court,” Ridgway is quoted as saying by Htxt.
