What reasons were given by the judge?
From the other side of the forum,
“In my view the application cannot succeed,” Judge Louis Vorster ruled.

He said the crux of the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance’s application, that there had not been an efficient public participation process, was flawed.

Always been a lie down and take it like a man kind of person?

Are you planning to buy an e-tag?

No. I'm not paying a cent. SANRAL can kiss my ass.
However, like it not - E-Tolls will go ahead and, South Africans are just going to take it. Earlier this year, 200k e-tags were bought. Just saying.

That was the final battle... it's over.

Nope, that was just the first shots of the war. The real battle is now on the streets.
The public do not want e-tolls and will continue to resist it by not buying etags and by not paying.
This war is far from over.

SANRAL has lied to the public through out this entire process... now you want to start believing them?

200k total e-tags were bought, that includes the existing infrastructure + government and fleet vehicles, it never actually stated individual purchases. Also 200k out of 4 million??

Directly paying the toll fees is just the tip of the iceberg. The main effect will be on the price of goods and services.

If the support of recent COSATU organised protests are anything to go by, you GP'ers are screwed.

SCUMRAL should know exactly how many etags have been sold. And 200k isn't it. If they can't even get something as simple as that right how on earth could they run a collection system? Just saying.

And by the court case so is everyone else in the country. Coming soon to your roads - gantries.

And so the real action begins. If the courts can't do it, then we can and we will!

Expect Cosatu to make good on their promises to bring the country to a standstill...

Does anyone know which regulation covers the fact that all prices of a good or service must be disclosed? Is it the national credit act?

Because I think the SCUMRAL eTolls price boards are about to get very busy.

That was just a small taste, people were not bothered because some thought OUTA would win in the courts. Watch COSATU bring this country to a halt, they will pull every union in this country to strike and I am pretty sure more people will protest. Let's also not forget that when these huge protests take place, things tend to get damaged. Badly.

They have made their intention known and they will toll other provinces if this one is successful.

I'm pretty sure that he will tweet soon enough. Be prepared for what is to come because this is one war we, as citizens of this country are gonna fight to win.

Oh .. good.

you believe SAnral when they gave that number? It's a lie to scare old and stupid people into buying tags.

People expecting Cosatu to stop this are dreaming. The guys and the top will be made offers for their cooperation and their opposition will disappear.
