Sorry, I meant what is the link to the website where you can put in the registration number to see the toll fees?

Found it.
But you have to click it twice. Weird.

It's there but not there, sort of as if they want you to register first. >:D

...3 Days in and the  bill(unregistered) sits at R40 already.

So until we reach "Defcon 1" and go make a few bonfires...

(Question)
If I replace the blue (non-reflective) lettering of my number plate with some 3M Blue reflective tape so that both the lettering and the background reflects light back to the camera..?  this way the plate looks ok (during day time) to the naked eye but the plate is a (almost)white-out to the cameras.

Well, I'll let you all know...  onto ebay we go..

how does the tag work,does it transmit a radio signal and if so can't someone simulate that signal to show that one has paid.
clone the etag type of thing.

Works with RFID. Gantry transmits a signal and etag gets activated by it, responding with the unique is

...my (blue)luminous tape ordered from Canada,(previous post) hope it doesn't take too long...

Plan B:  Polarized/Directional  Perspex or Film :

If the gantry looks down at 30' something like this might work...

There is already a purposely made film you can buy for your number plate and for the cameras. Posted somewhere else on the forum.


Would personally love to have switchable smart glass film. You stick it over your plate and it looks normal but at the push of a button it goes opaque.

Is this so?

the recently enacted, so-called ‘E-Tolls Bill’ makes non-compliance a criminal act.

No.  That is if by non-compliance you mean not getting an etag.

OUTA, AA etc have all repeated, ad nauseum, it is perfectly legal to not get an etag and pay via other means.  Just scare mongering.  Some people seem to get a huge kick out of spreading scary rumours, not sure why.

It is illegal to tamper with you licence plate though.  Or not have a number plate, or have a non-regulation plate.

Speaking of which  :biggrin:

If some completely irresponsible anti social misfit were to try and obscure their number plate from those cameras I would think some sort of film would be better than a screen in front of the plate which would be very obvious - as oppose to a thin film applied to the plate.  Just saying... there's no accounting for what some people will do  ;)

Not referring to the e-tag issue in this thread. Rather putting a film over the plate and using it to evade toll would be non-compliance.

Nothing illegal about putting a screen or whatever over your plate as long as the plate is clearly visible when on the road. (Intermittend screens)
You can totally obstruct your plate when parked on private property as in shopping mall parking or at home.
Using or activating the screen on the road to evade police, cameras, toll would be illegal. On what grounds I don't know.

Toll seems to be illegal due to non-compliance in the E-Toll bill - but they first have to catch you.

No, that would be a traffic violation and cost you R500
