New Bill targets e-toll protest

2012-08-03 09:44

BEWARE PROSPECTIVE E-TOLL DODGERS: The Pretoria High Court might have ordered Sanral from collecting e-tolls, but government has already lined up a bill for when the court order is lifted.

The Cabinet has approved a bill that will allow the state to take action in the civil courts against people who dodge e-tolls.

The Transport Laws and Related Matters Amendment Bill was approved by the Cabinet in anticipation of the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project, which has been stalled.


Toll evaders could face garnish orders against their pay or attachment of their property if they refuse to pay fees or fines.

"The bill has been necessitated by the development of the GFIP, as well as future plans for the development of road infrastructure," a government spokesman said.

"The bill is essential to enable the implementation of the electronic toll collection system."

On April 28 the High Court in Pretoria handed down an order preventing the SA National Roads Agency Limited from levying or collecting e-tolls pending the outcome of a judicial review.

The court will hear arguments in the e-toll case on November 26.
