Etags who has them, who doesn't and who actually pays
« on: January 07, 2014, 08:24:09 am »
Hi Guys,

Was wondering about these damm etags and if the majority of people like myself still use the Free-ways without paying?

Also if I'm on Debt counselling how can I accumulate any more debt if the court has ordered that I cannot?  :deal:

Where's the "I'm tagged and unHappy to pay"-option?

Sorted, I just thought if you had a tag then you've given up and happy to pay  :imaposer:

My "account" seems to be going towards R10 000 a month.

Without them tags it could be double that.

You see why I'm unHappy to pay?

I don't have an account or tag, so I pay NOTHING!   In my eyes if you got an e-tag you deserve what you get.

It's time companies also stand up against this e-tolling.  Why is it that only the public should fight it?  This should be fought by public and business together.

Boycot if you want, don't if you don't want.  I just wish SA businesses would also grow spines and help in the fight.  Not just bend over and pass all the extra costs on to the public.

Boycott businesses that support e-toll. One of my clearing agents wanted to charge an "e-toll levy"..... I closed my account, and am moving elsewhere. Same will happen to any service or supplier that tries that nonsense!... account will be closed..... SHE GONE! >:D

Boycott businesses that support e-toll. ! >:D

This is why this thread will die early. Nobody wants to stand in the road and be peppered with negativity. Show me one person who lovingly pays e-toll. I don't know any but I know people who registered and are still unhappy about it. So have I because I run a business and have trucks on the road. Boycott me then if you like.
I live to please but don't always succeed

If certain supply chains don't want anything to do with e-toll, what's your company's policy? E-toll is NOT a legal requirement. A lot of co's seem to want to jump on the band-wagon of making extra bucks by pushing the blame on Sanral. What benefit do you get from registering?

Exactly!  And all these companies do is to add some extra levy to their services or products so that they can pass the e-toll costs (plus "admin fees" or whatever crap they can think of) on to the next person/company in the chain.   SPINELESS!!!

I discussed the point with a director of OneLogix recently - their vehicles all have e-tags. He himself does not have an e-tag and hates the system, but he avoids the highways - I told him he should use them and make it a nightmare for Sanral to get their money, as he can obviously afford it - will see if I've convinced him......

In a way I can understand businesses that use the highways a lot, getting e-tags - they would be the 1st to be targeted by Sanral collection and would be easy prey, as one "person" is responsible for the very large account.

Without big business to chase, Sanral has to chase us, for relatively small amounts and much harder to find - lekker!

I own a small transport business. Without e-tags my account would be in excess of R20 000 per month.

After a year I will owe them one quarter of a bar, excluding penalties and the like.

Now some clever peanut knocks on my door demanding payment.

I tell him to buzz off because I've got balls.

You guys reckon it will work then?
