Outstanding e-toll fees will be linked to the license renewal system, and road users will have to settle their bills with Sanral before new license discs will be issued.
This is according to Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, who announced massive e-toll discounts on 19 May.
Motorists will have to pay their outstanding e-tolls upon renewal of vehicle licences, said Ramaphosa, “creating a solid link between road users and the e-toll system”.
All current outstanding e-toll bills will be discounted by 60%, with road users given six months to pay these off, he added.
The new discounts will apply whether motorists have an e-tag or not.
