You do know the taxis are exempt from etoll right? Unless it has changed since the last time I read up on it. Worst case scenario they get massive discount on it.
Report what?Why doesn't anyone report on this?
Is it just me, or is everyone missing the elephant in the room?
I don't understand why no was moaning or even just questioning the fact that someone was erecting 10m+ high surveillance poles on our roads. On the roadside next to the N1, between cape town and worcester, and on the N2, between cape town and somerset west you can see these things every few km (as one looses sight of you, another takes over).
I've mentioned it before: Thread: E-tags rolling out to other provinces but no one seems to care, until it's too late that is.
Here's some off google street view (this is old pictures, probably taken before the 2010 WC, each one now has multiple cameras running on solar as well as wind power)
(seems as though the links to the images only show up when you are logged in, wonder why? )

I think this is one of the reasons the City is/was using in their case.What about traffic jams? Sometimes it take 1 1/2 hours to get to Cape Town from Paarl.
Gonna be chaos imo.

To avoid the tolls people are going to use the back roads, causing major traffic congestions on roads not meant to carry this amount of traffic. The increased traffic will result in increased maintenance on non-tolled roads, costs will escalate and the tolls will not contribute to these costs. The city will have to obtain the funding in some way, so guess who is going to pay, us, the same people having to pay tolls.
The communities in and around Cape Town must write to their political representatives - and/or the Mayor of Cape Town - to state that they do not support tolling by SANRAL. This is a time when the community MUST raise their voices and make sure they are heard. Not when the toll stuff is already up, but before any construction starts.
