11th hour e-toll interdict attempt: FF Plus

The Freedom Front Plus has made a last minute attempt to try and stop the implementation of e-tolling.

“The FF Plus’s court application for an interdict against the switching on of the e-toll system will be heard on December 2 in the High Court in Pretoria, a day before the system is to be switched on,” spokesman Anton Alberts said in a statement on Tuesday.

Alberts was confident of victory, saying the state had made critical technical errors with the announcement of the implementation date of e-tolls.

“In terms of the Sanral Act, there has to be a 14-day difference between the date on which the commencement of the e-toll is announced, and the date on which the actual implementation of the system will take effect.”

In effect, he said the system was only meant to start operating on December 4, and not December 3.

“The FF Plus, its partners and its legal team are all convinced that the interdict will be granted and that we will achieve a victory for all road users who are of the opinion that the e-toll is an unfair and unnecessary form of tax,” said Alberts.
