Toll gate skipping
« on: March 19, 2013, 01:09:58 pm »
Hey guys yesterday a dude tried to skip trough the toll gate that I just paid while the boom was open. Unfortunately his vuka was not fast enough. He was just a kid so I just told next time I will hand his ass to him. Now my question how many of you dogs pull this move at toll gates? Because I pay at the toll gates or it just me.

Your thoughts...

Sjooee, 131 reads and only 2 comments... I think that should indicate the answer to you already... :peepwall:

I pay the toll gates as I chose to use that particular piece of road.

Ganjora always stops at the toll gates, Lifts his visor, Smiles and says "How Much?"
They tell him. He smiles and says "no thats too much" and rides around the boom

I recently went on a trip to durban. I took back roads down but on the way back i paid all tolls on th N3 with my card as it was easy and quick.

i think as a road user it is the right thing to do. anything else is theft. IMO

And another dog on here was about to skiet a toll gate and gunned it only for his GS to run out of gas and stall right at the boom, so he climbed of and walked to the window paid and pushed his bike to the other side ;)

Theft is charging the same price for a 200kg bike as a 3 ton car and caravan!

Well in terms of the N3TC roads it's their roads their prices. if we ride on them without paying it's stealing. like if someone uses electricity and does not pay.

It depends on the toll gate and the alternative route options.

The toll gate between Middelburg and Witbank I won't ever pay...

I have to confess to shooting the odd tollgate in the past  :biggrin:
How can I be lost if I've got nowhere to go?

I have never skipped a toll, but then again we don't have that many down here yet.

I personally object to paying the same price as a 4x4 with a trailer if I am on a bike, I really feel that a bike should get a consession. That being said I am sticky when it comes to paying for things, if there is a charge I will pay it no matter how much it gets under my skin or pisses me off.

I went to a bakery today.. I ordered 3 red velved cupcakes for the ladies in the office.

Got to the till.. R55.50 please  :o

I did'nt steal it because I thought it was too expensive, I had a choice, pay or don't pay, IMO same thing with tolls.

there's another classic one i use.
man,  it get laughs!!!
stop in the que,  and chill.
check out who's behind you in the que.
wave and smile,  and give them the thumbs up.
when you get to the window,  you be polite,  and ask how she's doing.
then turn around,  and wave and thumbs up to your new friends behind you.
then explain to the lady in the booth that your wife/mate/parents will pay for you,  as your wallet is in your bag in the car.
give your new mates another thumbs up and wave.
drive away laughing hysterically in your helmet!!!!!

I've paid some, I've skipped some, I've avoided some.
Do I agree with them ? Certainly not the prices, but the principal is ok.

We passed through that toll gate this weekend.  I paid (never skipped one) but damn it's expensive!

What happens when you just ride round the boom?
