The e-toll gantry information Sanral supplied to an inquest into an accident involving President Jacob Zuma's son Duduzane was "inconsistent", the State submitted on Monday.
"Information from Sanral [the SA National Roads Agency Limited] is irreconcilable and inconsistent with all the evidence before this court," prosecutor Yusuf Baba told the inquest sitting in the Randburg Magistrate's Court.
Does anybody know of a special, bottomless fund for the industry from which it may freely take hands-full of money to pay for - amongst all he other levies - the e-toll tax?
No, brother, every last dime spent on these sneaky plans, including e-tolling, ultimately comes out of the individual's pockets. You do not only pay your own e-toll tax, but you also pay for the e-toll taxes incurred by the government workers and the business world. None will allow their margins to be reduced by e-toll (or any other levy for that matter), they simply increase the price to cover the extra costs.
In fact, it is even worse, whereas the individual can decide for himself where and when to travel, he has no control over when and where the bread-flour trucks, milk delivery trucks, and ultimately, the truck delivering your bread to the supermarket will travel.
