Plan B for the failed e-toll

Gauteng motorists still owe more than R6 billion in unpaid tolls. The government has proposed new laws after the failed e-tolling revenue collection.

Chairperson for Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse, Wayne Duvenhage, says the new amendment bill proposed that in future the e-toll routes should have viable alternative routes.

They are proposing that the municipalities and metros have a bigger say in the matter and that the public consultation be meaningful.

Had these amendments existed at the time the e-toll decision was made then the e-toll decision wouldn't ever have happened.

Duvenhage says they believe that the e-tolls are not working because the public consultations were not done properly - members of the public never bought into it.

He says these decisions work in other countries because the public is engaged and they buy into the idea before it is implemented.
