After months of delays and talks with goverment, the Gauteng e-toll system will be implemented, the transport minister reported.

We've had many responses to the etolling announcement. Reader Dan Govender emailed us to share his thoughts on the Gauteng e-toll plan:

How can SANRAL take an existing road that has been paid for ten times over and charge people for using it?

They have never maintained it and the taxpayer has to foot the bill .motorbikes must still pay and they do the least if not, none damage to the roads. Busses and taxis are exempt from paying yet they do the most damage to the roads.

Busses and taxis are businesses making money. What is wrong with our government is, they just don’t care for the people’s needs.

Our local roads are also not maintained, yet our rates and taxes are still being paid. The paying people are always getting punished.

Why we are South Africans accepting all this government slaps on us? We should put a stop to it before they dig us into a hole we can’t get out of.
