Perhaps the most important question:

Are there any Lawyers here who will take on eToll cases?
I think we are going to need them.

OUTA and the FF have offered that service already

I hope that they have lots of Lawyers available.
There should be at least several hundred thousand cases a month.

Their spec sheet says 870nm wavelength illumination.  That's infrared right?

I see the datasheet says:

Peak wavelength 870nm / 830nm (other wavelengths available on request, also white light).

870/830nm is infrared, yes, but I guess they've opted for "other wavelength" (blue), not sure.


Seems the 870 nm is a blue light or do they just use a blue filter over it ???

150m Infrared Light(Φ10 IR Led, Wavelength 870nm)

Would be worth trying ???

Or mounting a IR LED in the pop rivets if it does not emit visible light?

PS  You get IR film used for building windows.  Maybe worth a try to see if that works.

JPSA ripping Sanral website apart  :lol8:

http://www.jp-sa.org/eTollsSANRALwebsite.asp

and their recommendations:

"What does JPSA advise people to do?

JPSA is not in a position to tell you you should go about dealing with SANRAL and their eTolls. All we can do is to present the facts to you and tell you what our stance is:

    We are not registered for eTolls and have no intention of doing so;
    We have challenged the Department of Transport and other government departments to provide answers with respect to defective legislation and the unnecessary threats levelled by SANRAL against the public. They have not responded other than through the media to any of our challenges up to and including Sunday 12 January 2014;
    Even with the access to the VPC having been made available without forcing registration for eTolls we would not use their website for any other purpose than accessing information and forms that are only available on their website due to, amongst other things, the security risks associated therewith.
    We would most certainly not provide any personal information, including but not limited to cell phone numbers and email addresses to them, given the acutely demonstrated existing security vulnerablities and the total lack of any assurance by them to keep personal information safe. In fact, they do the exact opposite by stating their direct intent to disclaim any liability.

Knowing this, if you wish to go ahead and register with SANRAL, remembering that this will be for both, use of their website and subscription to eTolls, then don't let us stop you. Similarly however, please don't come back to us and say we didn't tell you what we have found to be the case on the SANRAL/ETC eTolls website."

@Kneeslider

I wonder what their system does with a trailer behind a vehicle? Also two different plates  ???

I work for a big transport company. Since mid December I've been getting these SMS'es saying our account is in arrears. I asked for statements.

Turned out our trailers that are not registered, is being charged when they pass the gantry, but the horse is passing no problem with the e-tag.

Busy arguing the point with them - they acknowledge it's wrong.
