E-Tolls Have Failed – OUTA

What clearer message is it going to take for the Transport Minister to admit that the e-tolls have failed?

When Transport Minister, Dipuo Peters, recently told parliament that the South African National Roads Agency Limited’s (SANRAL) discount offer on old e-toll debt had brought in only R145 million of the R5.9 billion it was owed, the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse was quick to ask: “What clearer message is it going to take for the minister to admit the scheme has failed?”

The organisation points out that a grand total of 130 000 motorists had paid in an average of R1115 each, clearing less than 2.5 percent of the outstanding total dating from before 31 August 2015.

“Going forward, that means e-toll payment levels will stay below 30 percent,” says OUTA chairperson, Wayne Duvenage, adding that this should send a clear message to the authorities that the e-toll horse they've been flogging has been dead for some time now.
