The Gauteng legislature will debate a petitions committee report on the proposed highway tolling system at noon on November 29, 2011.The Democratic Alliance, the Congress of SA Trade Unions and the SA National Civic Organisation have submitted a joint petition against the proposed tolls. It is part of a campaign to resist the tolling system which is scheduled to come into effect in February, 2012.42 electronic toll gates have been erected on Gauteng's N1, N3, N12, N17, R21 and R24 freeways. The tolls cover a distance of about 185km.OUTRAGEThere was outrage when it was initially proposed that users of light motor vehicles with e-tag accounts would pay R0.49/km to use the toll roads, minibus taxi drivers R0.16/km and motorcyclists R0.30/km. Vehicles without an e-tag account would be charged R0.66/km.The provincial cabinet later approved tariffs, agreeing that light motor vehicles would pay R0.40/km, medium vehicles R1/km, "longer" vehicles R2/km and bikers R0.24/km. Qualifying commuter taxis and buses would travel free.There would be a 31 percent e-tag discount, a time-of-day discount and a frequent-user discount for motorcycles and light cars fitted with an e-tag.
