The whole Etolls debacle leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
I just wish more people had not given in so easily to the veiled threats from SANRAL. This battle would have been easier to fight if more people had stood together against this but I still have high hopes that we as the public can beat this extortion.
If I want to use the highways to get to work I go through 10 gantries a day. According to my “transaction report” that equates to between R12.54 and R19.14 EXCLUDING VAT per gantry.
Are they fucking crazy?
It will cost me more in etolls than diesel to drive to work. I don’t earn enough to justify these extra costs.
For this reason I am not going to pay and I will still use the highways when I need to. I might get taken to court. I might not. Let’s see what happens.
It’s things like this that make me despise government and what our country has become.
