The Freedom Front Plus takes note of Cabinet’s approval of the terms, conditions and tariffs for the Gauteng e-toll system. The FF Plus was expecting this decision as it was clear from the start that government’s consultation process was merely a smoke-screen to garner favour while the e-toll system would still be implemented.
“The FF Plus remains opposed to the e-toll system and is advising motorists not to go and purchase e-tags until the review of the e-toll system has been concluded in the Johannesburg High Court. In addition, legislation and regulations, which would make the implementation of the e-toll system and the enforcement of e-toll fees possible, still has to pass through parliament. The FF Plus will therefore constantly keep motorists informed about the progress of the process in parliament and the review court case and advise motorists which steps to take in order for motorists to remain within the limits of the law, despite their opposition to the e-toll system,” Adv. Anton Alberts, the FF Plus’ parliamentary spokesperson on Transport said.
The FF Plus intends to strongly oppose the e-toll legislation in parliament.
