    E-Tolling ban lifted

    Concourt rules that interdict can't stand.
    Court failed to consider separation of powers

    I dont know what all the fuss is all about, big deal it gona cost the vaalies another R500 to travel to work and back, rather that than we all get nailed with petrol price increases. People say if you want to "make" money move to JHB, if you want a relaxed lifestyle live in Durbs by the sea. When the vaalies come to Durbs they sure as hell dont look like they are short of cash. the mines are good example, couple million lost in revenue, no big deal, it just means that the shareholders wont be buying an island this year, they will have to settle with a R10 million property on one of the Cape beaches unfortunately. Shame.

    Well privatising public roads and billions go missing every now and then yea... No problem there, will taxi contribute in saving our roads... No... See with this bull$h!t system they get to use the roads for free as public transport. So not only are we paying double because we do actually pay for our roads via licence registrations we start to see a little “why?” do we have to pay MORE because last time I saw files on TV that was blacked out almost completely...

    So what is the big deal? Exactly that... We do not know where the money will go...

    Do you know where your tax money is going, the lotto money, etc, etc. Do you really think you are not going to end up sponsoring this whole fiasco in some form or another, be it fuel increases levies or whatever. I would rather the people in JHB pay for it than we all get lumped with the cost, we are not going to benifit from the new roads.

    You think other areas will not be affected?

    The suppliers will pay the tolls, and built it into their costs, which will be passed on to retailers, which will be passed on to consumers.

    So, you pay via petrol or retailer - all the same!

    Agreed Phil. We are paying 50% fuel levies so think about this: fill up your car 60 liters of petrol at R12, that means that when you fill up you give our government R360, I fill up 6 times per month on average, now put that into perspective of how many billion does government collect from fuel every month and now we must pay for roads because few people pocketed large sums of money to make this happen and we have to pay for it? And all they do is keep increasing the government spending therefore looking for ways to collect more money in taxes and etc

    The bottom line is no matter how much we argue about this, we get screwed anyway you look at it.

    I thought i would rev the JHB fellas just the same.

    I think that all we seen from the Bill phase of etolling to the latest developments is a facade. A sharade meant to dupe the SA people into thinking that protracted debate took place, consultations were sufficient, the toll price per km is reasonable, and that South Africans want etolling!
    Here the State should have seen its subjects dissatisfaction and just scrapped the whole idea.
