MD loves taking the Terios on dirt as well so by car or bike... no Dom Toll for us. :thumleft:

Registered , hope to benefit from the 50% discount. These things are not going to go away!

We live in the Northern parts of Pretoria , we had toll gates for a number of years now and used E Tags for quite a while. It is a convenient way of paying the inevitable!! Saves a lot of time in peak traffic as well.

Laasweek is ek in JHB.

Kom op die Highway afgevlieg soos wit blits. Dis mos E Toll, miljarde spandeer, Highway gaan mos loop!!

Toe vat dit my nogsteeds 20min van offramp na offramp.

So hy werk nes die ou Highway voor die Miljarde? Waarvoor moet ek meer betaal, om op n lanie teerpad stil te staan?

I hope you don't have to do these routes during peak hour traffic. If you do, then there is no discount. Only during non-peak hours do you get your discount. (Apparently)
You know you've landed with the wheels up when it takes full power to taxi to the ramp.

Bit of a shocker this morning.  Picked up a Class B Avis car and they've added R400 to the deposit - refundable upon return less any e-Toll charges incurred.

I dont have a problem with Avis recovering charges - but what happens when the same car is used throughout the month by different drivers, and lets say they all use the highways so that the maximum toll is recovered (I think it's R450 per month).  By implication the drivers at the beginning of each month will get klapped and those driving at the end of the month should get their deposit back........or am i missing something?

If i'm right this is the last time I hire a car at the beginning of the month.....

I stay in KZN...no use for me to register...still not sure how it will work when I visit with my KZN plates.

Mmm, Ive also wondered about this.

1. If you are from 'out of town' how do you pay ?
2. If you are a local and dont but an e-tag (not that anybody would do that   :eek7:) how do they catch you ? Does it photograph your number plate (from front or back) ?
3. Hire car question (which I fit into that category) has now been answered. I noted that the car I hired last month already had a tag on the windscreen and beeped everytime I went under one of the booms.

A few years back I was in Melbourne on business. They have a similar e tag system and for out of towners, you have to go online and can pay via eft. Trouble is there are a number of different toll booms and they are managed by different companies thus, different websites. As a tourist its a right pain in the butt.

Same situation here. had an etag for 10 years already. Where was everyone fighting our fight while we fund the Bakwena highway to Rustenburg. R8 to travel from Zambesi to N4 on Bakwena then R6  to travel from N4 to New Road, is a bargain. Think we should campaign to make Bakwena charge the same rates as Sanral then in fact I will save on what I have been paying for the last 10 years. Roads were lovely and quiet this morning and If I take the hourly rate I am paid at work into account I actually made a saving. Still plenty of big cars with one person only in them. Hoping this etol thing will make people think and decide to lift club or buy bikes to reduce congestion on the highway.
Where are my shorts??
