    Only 30% of motorists paid their e-toll invoices over the past two years, according to a report by Fin24.

    I'm actually surprised it's that high.

    I'm glad to be part of the 70%.

    I doubt that the 30% even covers the costs of running the computer systems, staff, postal costs, gantry maintenance, etc.

    When SCAMRAL going to realize that eTolls don't work in ZA and replace this with levy.

    I suspect the 30% are the car rental and govt/metro departments.

    that's 30% too much.

    E-toll payers fall into three broad categories:

    * Immigrants, from Zimbabwe and others, who are here on a work permit and don't want to have any risk of being deported. So they pay!

    * Old people, still in the DF Malan mindset, that, when the government says jump, they jump

    * Rich, tax dodgers, who want to keep a low profile as possible- they put the e-tag in the car. Even though its chump change for them, they don't want any record of non-compliance with anything.

    Large companies pay it as well.
