    They should scrap the Etolls and mount average speeding cameras on all of the gantries. The money paid on speeding fines should go to SANRAL. I am sure they will be getting more than they are receiving at the moment.

    If your parents didn't have kids, there is a good chance you won't either.

    Though I agree with you, don't for a second think this won't be recuperated elsewhere
    You'll (we'll?) still be paying for this, one way or another (-_-)

    How does replacing one corrupt tax with another solve anything.
    And my fines and etoll statements go into the same bin.

    Those people signed a little something called "Terms and Conditions".
    They "agreed" to the terms and conditions, thus agreeing to pay those e-tolls.
    Whereas the rest of us Resistance folk did not sign that crap.
    Power to the e-toll resistance!

    I often wonder whether the delays on scrapping something like this is due to planning sessions on how to avoid recourse from those who have already paid (and are still paying) for e-Tolls, especially trucking companies and car-rental agencies.

    I guess that answered my curiosity.

    I will also keep on funding them, just pointing out that the "need" will reduce once etolls are gone. Then we can actually use OUTA to fight other pressing matters like ring fencing part of the fuel levy for road upgrades and new road development.

    Speeding fines are not a tax. It's people not obeying the law by speeding. It's a punishment.

    Besides most people won't get fines in heavy traffic because it would be difficult to maintain the high average speed.

    Pretty much, but think about those folks now...knowing that not only did they pay once, but they're going to have to pay again.
