Unwanted Discounts on E-tolls

The Road Safety Campaign states that Gauteng road users do not need discounts and tariff reductions on e-toll fees because they never asked for tolls.
 
During public hearings on the impact of e-tolls, the Road Safety Campaign chairperson, Ali Gule, affirms that he does not think that people in Gauteng have asked for lucky packets and discounts, for something which they did not want.
 
The hearings intend to examine the economic and social impact of the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project and the electronic tolling system set up to fund it.
 

NGO Questions New Tollgate Fees

The Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR), a body of human rights lawyers, launches an urgent application to court challenging the validity of the Toll Roads (Regional Trunk Road Network) (Amendment) Regulations.

Under the new regime, users of light private vehicles will now pay US$2 up from US$1 and users of haulage trucks will now pay US$10, up from US$5, effective from 11 July 2014.

The organisation argues that the increase is unjustified.
