The list of issues misses the Zuma court case highlighting inconsistencies in the system. link.
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.

Getting worse for the scum backs. In our complex the one and only paying neighbor and his paying son also removed their e-tags from their vehicles yesterday after reading the Outa article.

We can only hope that sanity will prevail in the e-toll fiasco, very early in 2015.
They'd better do a reality check real fast. This will end in violent protests if the system is not scrapped.

Are we there yet?

Are we done with this embarrassing mess? Can we get on to the next one yet?

Their biggest lie about this whole mess is, of course - one which so many people do not realize when listening to these bloodsuckers, is when they state that most of the e-toll burden is carried by the industry.
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. You will fork out what is left after SARS has taken its yummy portion of your sweat, to pay all those levies and money-slurping inventions, to cover the shortfalls once the palaces of our leaders have been paid for.

They are true ingenious liars and predators. It is so that most of our countryman choose not to see the reality. This is otherwise known as doing your part for your country. Hillarious. isn't it.

'Allelujah!

Your first point I have realised early on. The second, thank you for that. I take alternative routes where and whenever I can. If you don't drive on it, they can't make you pay for it. Should we now force companies to label their food as being e-toll-free?
