Motorcyclists protesting e-tolls in Gauteng are expected to cause traffic disruptions on Saturday by riding on highways ear-marked for the project, Johannesburg metro police said.

"Traffic will be disrupted on Johannesburg freeways today [Saturday] as a group of motorcyclists will be driving in convoy in protest of e-tolls," said Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar.

"The group will gather at around 10am at the BP filling station on Beyers Naude and [the] N1 on and off-ramps."

The convoy would then drive down the N1, N12, N3, back onto the N1 and finally return to the BP filling station to disperse.

Metro police officers would be on duty to monitor the procession.

These protests should be more strategic so as to block government/SANRAL officials from going anywhere. Blockade their blue light brigades. Make sure to wear bulletproof vests, though.

Saturday no heavy traffic. Let them have road for themselves. They have petrol to waste.

i guess you are just trolling.

For the protest to have impact on the economy , it must be done during peak hours.

Look at Cosatu protest.
No, I'm angry about how they always sqeeuze in from lanes meant for turning, endangering everyones lifes.

And these people have weekday jobs, they protesting when they can.

Anti e-Toll mass ride makes the Sunday Times front page. About 2500 motorcyclists took part in a rally on Saturday 11 May along Gauteng's freeways, to protest the planned eToll system. OUTA congratulates the biking community for taking a stand.
