I decided to get an e-tag this past weekend.

My wife and I went to the R21 Sanral office and got the shock of our lives. My wife commutes from Pomona on ramp to Malibongwe road every week day and her outstanding account for the past 7 week's usage came to R3900. Now i am all against this system but who is going to help us pay this in 10 months time when they force us. Then we sit with an outstanding amount of R24000 just for one car and the longer you wait the more penalties you pay.

My outstanding balance was almost R1500. There were a bunch of people in the Sanral office with us that were getting their outstanding invoices and overheard one lady with an outstanding balance of R9000 for 3 cars. I definitely underestimated this system. They are very jacked up and already had all our personal information. Just by giving them my car registration they told me what make/model and color it was. They even had my 990 with all the correct info. You even get a magnetic weatherproof pouch for your bike and some handlebar mounts. All for R50, must cost them much more then that.

We then opened our e-toll accounts with them and got massive discounts. My wife ended up paying R1700 and I paid R700. This already made us want to cry as we did not budget for this. People can say what they want, your outstanding balance isn't just going to magically disappear and the DA is not going to win the election. We are both in the fortunate position that both our companies contribute about 80% per month if we use an e-tag. So I am not going to be stupid about this.



You do realise the legacy we will leave for our kids and their kids, forever, if this e-toll thing is allowed to carry on?

Well done comrade  ::)

While you do get the odd person caving in, I'm amazed at how many people have adopted the "Fark them" approach.  Many people who I would have thought would have just done what they were told have just dug their heels in.

All with exactly the same sentiment - "why should we willingly fund government greed and corruption, its enough now!".

SANRAL and the government are hoping that most people will finally capitulate after holding out a while. 

But we aren't going to, are we?

Fark, this sounds like an infomercial. Do you work for them or do you get paid to advertise this shit.

You are gutless and a nihilist. You are the reason corruption flourish in SA. Instead of standing up and standing in solidarity with your fellow SAners you choose to only think of yourself instead of what is morally wrong and right.

Cowards make me sick.

Jeeees are you lot still doing your passive resistance thingy. Doesn't seem to be getting anywhere. But ok there is still lots of time for this resistance to crack sanral or someone to try and find another loophole to run to court with. I will pop in in a few more weeks to check progress..

This is the crux of the matter to me - they're tolling the only road, the one that's always been here - at a bargain price of R450/ month - FOREVER!!!

How much do these cretins think our clerical/salaried commuters earn, FFS.

At least, with the postal strike, I've stopped receiving reams of bills. Can you imagine how that stuff must be piling up in the depots.
