Title: JUMPING TOLL GATES
Post by: NEON DEON on June 24, 2021, 06:16:36 am
Not paying toll is quite popular amongst many bikers , as they feel bikes pay more for the space they use . Now a new fine has been implemented . its R500 per gate or gantry . and they have you on film . so rather pay up than slide past  .

Fine from whom, it's a toll concession and privately managed, so who administers the fine?

There is a fancy mandate that can be given.  You can even apply for it for your own driveway and then the cops can come fine your buddies legally.

If I'm on a big enough trip to warrant taking toll roads, I'll just pay the toll. It's not exactly expensive.
If you're taking toll roads on smaller trips, especially on a bike, then you're doing it wrong.

In Latin America bikes always go free.

In South Africa, dont forget to wave for the camera.

Or if you do insist to pay, make sure you stop. Take your gloves off, take your helmet off, put your sidestand down, get off the bike. Take out your wallet, get the cash out pay them with a R100 bill. Wait for change, drop the change. Put the change away, take the slip, look for a place to put it, give up and hand it back to the attendant, put the wallet away, put your helmet on, put your gloves on, swing over the bike. side stand up,revv the bike to the limiter, and pull away smoothly. Because its your right. :imaposer:

Our law system has what is called 'separation of powers'  which provides checks and balances and divide the state into legislative, executive and judicial.  This prevents abuse of power. (over the people or civilians)

Now the above law touched on to his for me.  All fine in my opinion if you give a mandate for your driveway (or lets use the example of a shopping mall private parking lot) for police to catch criminals based on the laws that they have to abide by.  But when you start incorporating private rules into law I think it is a slippery slope.

Jumping a toll gate of a private company is a civil matter.  It can be seen as theft and should be dealt with as such. But having it's own Aarto code? I am not so sure about that.
@Gerhard @Rynet please send me a PM. Am I totally wrong or are they doing wrong?

I think your thoughts are correct.  It will however be a matter of testing this in a court of law to see what the legal implications will be in such a case.   :peepwall:

I have jumped the Chapman's peak gates often, with fullsized legal plate on bike, never heard anything. OK, I don't go through the car drives, I rode around the bicycle by-pass path.

I came through du Toit's kloof pass once, and cops blocked the entrance to the old pass from Worcester side, don't know the rason, and I was forced to go through the toll gates.

I refused to pay, and stated that they took my alternative route away, the lady consulted her super in their office, and he/she told me to pay.

I simply passed through between the boom and the sode and rode off.  Also never heard anything.

Just like you get bikers that skip toll gates you get toll booth operators that are a bit over the top.

Wifey and I once stopped at a toll gate, behind a car. The car paid, but the operator refused to open the boom until we paid too. The car had moved forward to the boom, and we moved forward to the toll booth window. She said she's not opening for the car until we pay first. I refused, and told her to let the car go first, then I'll pay. I had no intention of skipping the booth, I was just immediately revved to the redline with her attitude. She sais she remembers us, we skipped it the week before. Which I've never done, she was obviously confusing us with other bikers.

Eventually the guy in the car starts getting upset and honking his horn, and the operator still just sits there. When he got out of his car and approached the booth she opened it, probably sensing a PK coming her way. I had half a mind to tailgate the car, just out of spite, but relented.

I sense she got into some serious kak the previous time the bikers skipped the booth. In the end, they're also only people wanting to earn a salary.

Inpossible for the toll booth operator to get into trouble because you skipped the boom. It would be like a traffic cop getting into trouble because you skip a red light.

A few year ago when I was still new to biking, I got to the Zambezi drive toll booth, before I stopped at the booth, a bike tail gated a car ahead of me.
When I stopped, the operator said that I need to pay for "My Friend" who didnt pay, So cos we both ride bikes, he is my friend and we know each other?
I told her that I dont know him, but she wanted to hear nothing of it. At this stage I realised that I had forgotten my wallet at home and had no  cash or cards on me, so now I couldnt even pay for myself. I told her to go F*** herself, and rolled my bike back out of the booth lane, thats when I noticed that the lane next to me was a go for free lane, it was blocked by a cone and had an open boom, so I promptly used the free lane.

You misunderstand. Road laws are applicable on toll roads yes, but not civil toll paying matters which most certainly has nothing to do with fines or road laws.  You mentioned a mandate that can be given (even on you driveway) which allows cops to fine you for not paying tolls?  Please elaborate on this claim?  What legal mandate is this where cops can fine you for not paying for tolls?

The contract between two private citizens are not part of our road laws.
Bakwena is a private entity.  If I have a tiff with them (lets say I painted their offices and the contract went south) then they should not be able to sit back and watch police charge me with a criminal offence.
They should make a case like every other private entity and take it to court.
This is very similar to me not paying a toll fee for whatever reason (maybe it was a e-tag malfunction and it could escalate into a criminal record)

Sanral on the other hand is a different story I think.

Don't know enough though and might be on a total wrong line of thinking.

If you travel to Polokwane on a Friday, let's say the Moira weekend, it makes perfect sense to have an e tag, cause you simply cruise through the dedicated e-tollgate - no queue, no nothing.

Us mere mortals without e tags, have to queue for hours behind all the other road users.

But I agree, for driving on the Gauteng Freeways, no way I'll use the e tag.

I still have three e-tags.  They were never linked to the sanral e-toll however and only worked on bakwena. 
Works great on N1 north and N4 east as Leo mentioned.  Need to update paperwork if I want to use them again.

I cannot believe there is still people with an e-tag, I mean really?????

If you travel to Polokwane on a Friday, let's say the Moira weekend, it makes perfect sense to have an e tag, cause you simply cruise through the dedicated e-tollgate - no queue, no nothing.

Us mere mortals without e tags, have to queue for hours behind all the other road users.

But I agree, for driving on the Gauteng Freeways, no way I'll use the e tag.
I do that, but i dont own a tag!  :imaposer:

You are 100%, hence my question to Bear to explain this ‘mandate’ which allows for the police to enforce private issues.  He is not providing any explanation though, so i guess its just speculation and false news?

If I trespass on your property, which is private, you may have the police arrest me.

Sure for trespassing which is a criminal offense. I cant get the police to give you fine paid to me..
