Traffic fines if you don’t pay e-tolls

The Department of Transport has published draft amendments to the AARTO Act in the Government Gazette which could be a veiled attempt to fine motorists who are boycotting the e-toll system.

Haha, 80% of motorists don't pay their fines away....

That's about the same rate as E-toll compliance. :twisted:

Hilarious!

Sigh, even if they do give fines, the e-tolls is using illegal cameras so the government will have to scrap all the fines. It's like a infinite loop. Government throws toys around. People shows government the finger.

Found this link to fight this. Thanks OUTA.

You can use the three:

This latest Gazette (# 39482), is regarded as impractical and in our opinion, unconstitutional for the following reasons:-

They do not provide proof that your vehicle was at the scene of the incident noted, in that there is no photograph of your vehicle for each and every infringement listed.
There is also an absence of a unique reference number per incident, which is required for dispute resolution purposes.
The magisterial district per incident is also not listed, which is again required for dispute resolution purposes.
