There is no doubt that if they get it right here in Gauteng it is only a matter of time that the rest of the provinces will get it. They will have set a precedent.

http://www.timeslive.co.za/politics/2013/11/19/1.4-million-e-tags-remain-unsold-minister

"Sanral procured 2,107,000 e-tags over the past three years; [a total of] 1,427,900 have not been allocated," she said in a written reply to a parliamentary question.

The figures imply 679,100 e-tags have been sold.

Six weeks ago, Sanral CEO Nazir Ali said 600,000 e-toll tags were in circulation.

In September, President Jacob Zuma signed into law the Transport Laws and Related Matters Amendment Bill, giving Sanral the nod to start e-tolling on Gauteng's freeways.

In her reply, Peters said Sanral had spent about R25.3 million during the period January to October this year on campaigns to encourage the public to buy e-tags.

This was in addition to about R11.3m spent in November and December last year.

PRETORIA - Minister of Transport Dipou Peters at a special briefing today announced that the e-toll system will officially go live on 3 December 2013.

The South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) has halved the cost of tariffs to motorists who have registered and received their e-tags.

The minister said, “We acted as a responsible government. We have learned many lessons from listening to the public.”

According to the Peters, the highway network was a “ticking time bomb waiting to explode” and
“reaching crisis point”.

Before making the announcement Peters said, “Gauteng is the economic hub of the country. Growth can't happen without infrastructure, including roads.”

I wonder how entertaining it will be if all your food prices escalate as well. 90% of all truck transport routes go through Gauteng, so the tollgates will have a direct effect on all transport costs and thus prices of anything that are transported by truck in this country.

So, while you sit there laughing in the Western Cape and think it's entertaining, we are fighting this side for your financial benefit as well.. :deal:
Trust that little voice in your head that says 'Wouldn't it be interesting if...'; And then do it.
