When e-tolls were rolled out some people played ball and forked over the cash, but those numbers have slowly dwindled. What remains is nothing more than a mess.
You can now get a little crafty when it comes to avoiding traffic fines and e-tolls. Not bribery, that’s old news, but rather a 007 style gadget.
Produced and published by Shaun Gunning, this video (and supporting document) is without a doubt the most comprehensive and emphatic argument for why the E-Tolls project cannot succeed without major taxpayer support to the tune of billions of Rands in bailouts over the course of the next few decades. It also provides strong circumstantial evidence […]
It looks like the DA have taken to the skies, using Mavericks’ style aerial banner placement in Johannesburg. Here’s a pic of their airborne signage cruising around Johannesburg. Hey did you catch THIS GUY‘s numberplate we posted earlier? [source: @maimaneAM]
The Government is going full steam ahead with their e-toll plans, after the Supreme Court of Appeal dismissed the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance’s (Outa) bid to stop the controversial multibillion Rand e-tolling project.
Well, this is just delightful. An outspoken but thus-far anonymous critic of the e-Tolls system in Johannesburg has erected massive advertising-grade billboards on the side of the N1 and N3, reading “E-tolls. Proudly brought to you by the ANC.”
Yesterday, the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) stood up, crossed their hearts, and said that they needed one million bucks to cover their legals fees in their continued fight against E-tolls in Gauteng. It took less than 24 hours for the DA to send that cash their way.

The SA National Roads Agency (Sanral) has confirmed that CEO, Nazir Alli has resigned. Even though they did not provide more details, Alli’s resignation comes close on the heels of the recent Gauteng e-toll system disaster.
While T.G.I.F. garners praise from all corners of the working world, many of us lack the sort of hard-nosed attitude toward the beginning of the work week that would increase our chances of making it past Wednesday in one piece. To that end, we present our latest satirical column, O.F.I.M. (Oh, [Insert Appropriate Eff Word […]
Judge Bill Prinsloo has granted the anti-e-Tolls lobby group, OUTA, an urgent hearing to argue for an interdict against the implementation of SANRAL’s controversial e-Tolls programme, which drew the ire of motorists and labour unions across the country in recent weeks.
“People power has brought down governments in North Africa; it can surely stop this assault on our living standards.” Cosatu has shown it doesn’t mess around when it comes to voicing its opinion. But will the “mother of all protests” against e-tolls actually make any difference?
