Court cases.....or lack thereof.
« on: June 04, 2014, 11:51:49 am »
Ok, so this e-toll farce has been operational now for six months already, now I can understand one, two maybe even three months of non compliance before the first legal steps get taken against offenders, while they iron out the kinks and all, but six months down the road and not a court case in sight.
And this on the back of aggressive threatening tactics about jail time and criminal records et al, something don't add up.
Now my take on the story is that SANRAL are avoiding court at all costs and would rather give in to the non compliance and take what they can off the sheep because they are well aware that they will see their ass in court and if the first ruling finds in the favour of the defendant the precedent is set and they will be forced to shut the whole corrupt operation down.

What is your take on it?

Why do you think they are now offering this "amnesty" BS?
Young enough to know I can, old enough to know I shouldn't, stupid enough to do it anyway.

I think there will be court cases soon - the delay I believe has/is being caused by Sanral trying to get their ducks in a row before the 1st case and them now trying to get rid of duplicate plates, as these will result in a lot of embarrassment in court - I for one, will demand to see photos of each and every gantry with my various vehicles CLEARLY visible

There was an article in the financials this morning with the CEO of something- a dude called Suurkont (relax WB, I took some license with the spelling for obvious reasons) and it seems prosecutions will soon start.

I saw today between the Mint and New road going south at the on-ramp from Teasers there were a number or SANRAL vehicles and caravans etc, as well as some highway patrols, and they had a strip across the road that every vehicle had to go over - I did not actually stop and see, but not sure what they were doing there

Was also stopped on Monday on the bike on the on-ramp at 14th ave - and asked to see my licence - took the details down, and then asked for the bike disc - I keep it under the seat with the number plate for safe keeping O0 and took those details as well, but not too keen to give me a fine for non display - they pulled off every second vehicle a peak afternoon traffic and took these details??

Any idea??

I think it will be even more of interest than the OP trial? I really look forward to this one

SO why taking details? Updating their databases to link correct vehicles with correct ID number?
I have had my bike since Feb and still got nothing from them  :imaposer:

Sadly there is more interest in the trial of an ill tempered little twat who murdered his girlfriend .... Oops I mean the OP trial , that is just the shame of people ( sheeple) , but ja. Weird species

I wish there were mor people "interested" in the newest theft of ours and our childrens future in this country ... Oops I mean e-toll's
