    It was mentioned in a recent press conference, I don't have a printed source
    This was in response to the COSATU strikes regarding transport costs for the masses

    "Sanral would like to clarify to road users that it is not compulsory for road users to buy an e-tag for Gauteng e-tolling. Registering with an e-tag is optional," it said in a statement.

    It was reported earlier that Sanral was attempting to legally force motorists to buy an e-tag or have their driver's licences taken away.

    "Road users are therefore not forced to buy an e-tag, but are encouraged to obtain one to enjoy the cost saving benefits available to e-tag users."

    These benefits included a 48% e-tag discount and a frequent user discount.
    Essentially: if you get an etag, you pay a lot of money getting tolled. if you didn't, you pay a SHITLOAD of money getting tolled.

    As someone who lives in PTA and works in JHB.. this + 70+ cents increase per litre... It hurts. I can only catch the Gautrain so much due to me working in multiple locations. Its going to suck.

    What I'm struggling to comprehend is if they can afford to give a ~50% discount to e-tag users, why the hell are they charging so much in the first place? Rather reduce the price across the board by ~40% and everyone will be happier.
