The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse, which is opposing the e-tolling system, its membership has grown by several thousand over the past few weeks. This is despite SANRAL offering a 60% discount for Gauteng road users to settle outstanding e-toll debts.
"We all know that we use the user-pays principle. We all know that SANRAL is entrusted with the responsibility of developing and maintaining roads at national level.
"Then expand the solution to the district, then to the province, and then nationally. If SANRAL, eNatis, the department of transport and local police were all connected and understood things like cars going through toll gates, and share information about crimes in the area, traffic patterns, specific high-crime time periods, and overlay social media information, they would be able to isolate and identify perpetrators.
Outa says it is in no way surprised the South African National Roads Agency (SANRAL) has been forced to extend the period by another 10 days "in an attempt to claw back a bit more of the R5.9 billion discounted e-toll debt".
