E-tolls on their way out

The Gauteng government is confident that e-tolls are on their way out and expects a “major announcement” from President Cyril Ramaphosa soon.

In recent years many organisations, including the ANC in Gauteng, Cosatu, and the SACP, have called for e-tolls to be scrapped.

Cannot compute.
What's so difficult to compute? If they scrap eTolls they'll probably increase the fuel levy or add another one to fund the roads and you can refuse to pay it.

So yay we win the eToll fight and now we'll be financially worse off.

It really isn't that difficult to understand.

How many times have we heard this story already and nothing comes of it, like any ANC action anyway.

If you really want to give gov the middle finger. Buy electric car. No levy on that.
There are, of course, many challenges, such as the lack of nationwide charging stations, and the higher prices of EVs, partly due to an import tax of 25% vs the 18% for combustion engine cars.
