JPSA soek klaring oor e-tol-vervolging


Die Justice Project SA (JPSA) het Vrydag gesê die beoogde prosesse om diegene te vervolg wat nie vir die Gautengse e-tolstelsel gaan betaal nie, is onduidelik.

Howard Dembovsky, woordvoerder van die JPSA, het Vrydag in ʼn verklaring gesê hulle is oorval met vrae van die publiek omdat die Suid-Afrikaanse Nasionale Padagentskap (Sanral) en die departement van vervoer nie duidelikheid oor dié kwessie verskaf nie.

“Daar heers ook ʼn doodse stilte van die Nasionale Vervolgingsgesag (NVG) oor dié aangeleentheid,” het Dembovsky gesê.

“Ongelukkig is ons nie in staat om veel meer as ‘n raaiskoot te waag oor hierdie saak nie, aangesien dit nie blyk of die beoogde vervolging van e-tol-oortredinge dieselfde prosedures van vervolging as ander padverkeersoortredinge gaan volg nie.”

Hy het gesê tot dusver is net ‘n onbepaalde skuldinvorderingsproses, voor vervolging, genoem.

“Weens die verwarrende inligting wat versprei word, is ons met geen ander keuse gelaat nie as om ons prokureurs opdrag te gee om ‘n verduideliking te eis van die betrokke owerhede.”

Hy het gesê as die JPSA nie teen Vrydagmiddag ʼn verduideliking kry nie, hulle die hooggeregshof gaan nader vir duidelikheid. Lees die volle verklaring hier.

Sanral is ook maar in die duister want daar is bittermin in plek. Al wat hulle in die oog het is om tol gelde te hef om sodoende te begin skep.

HOW TO LEGALLY DELAY PAYING FOR eTOLLS By way of a public service announcement, here is a 100% legal, fully above board way to DELAY paying for e-tolls …. 1) Do not buy an eTag. 2) After the first 4-6 weeks of passing through toll gantries, send SANRAL a registered letter, expressing your concern, that for the last 4- 6 weeks you have not received a payment request from them (even if you have received one through regular mail). Unreliable postal services could be to blame, so please would they send you a copy invoice by registered mail, to ensure you receive it. This is a AARTO legal requirement for a letter of demand. You must state that you are COMPLETELY willing to pay the toll fees, but this cannot be carried out without a detailed invoice. Insist that you need original documents for your private accounting and filing system and as proof of expenditure for tax purposes. 3) Make a photocopy of your letter, get a COMMISSIONER OF OATHS to stamp the copy, and keep your registered mail receipt. Such a request could take months to be settled, and if you are fortunate, never at all due to the sheer volume of similar requests received. Should you finally receive a notification that a registered letter has arrived for you, take as long as possible to collect it. This method is based upon the fact that they do not use registered mail to send invoices. If one considers the past history of all traffic fines received, these all arrive by normal mail to prevent the high costs of registering letters. 4) Should SANRAL surprisingly, after a lengthy period, comply with (1) above, then send them a second CERTIFIED letter by registered post, requesting that they send you a CERTIFIED photograph for every single gantry you have passed under for that month, proving that is was your car you that is being invoiced.( Perfectly legal and reasonable request from any motorist ). Explain that you have heard that certain motorists are using illegal false number plates and you therefore require the photographs to prove that it is definitely your car that is being charged. Such photographs obviously, you must request to also be sent by registered mail to ensure delivery. Also take weeks before you collect such registered mail, should it in the unlikely event, ever be posted. Such a request could take months to be settled, or if you are very fortunate, never. Consider the sheer volume of requests they should by now have received. Their system is not set up for such requests, I am almost positive that this is the case (hope I am not wrong on this one). Can you imagine the difficulties and problem they will have trying to MANUALLY comply with the thousands upon thousands of similar requests received. To be really difficult, how about querying some of the less clear photographs taken at night. Even if they come back to you asserting that the photographs are in their opinion, all perfectly readable, further delays will have been successfully applied. 5) Should SANRAL try to speed up communications by requesting your e-mail or fax number, or send you SMS’s, or trying direct contact by phone, decline this generous offer. Insist that you need original documents for your private accounting and filing system and as proof of expenditure for tax purposes. 6) In the unlikely event that all the above somehow be resolved, than obviously pay, but only for that particular month under review. 7) Start the whole lengthy procedure all over again, 4-6 weeks after the termination of the second month’s toll fees due. Continue with the same, for every individual month that follows. It shouldn’t take long for the whole system to fall over, even if just 10% of the drivers do this…..
