Gauteng’s e-tolls could possibly be either scrapped altogether or motorists offered a 70% discount on the current fees - this is according to a recent report. However, no confirmation has been given by the government.
According to TimesLIVE, a recent report by City Press gives Gauteng drivers new hope regarding e-tolls.
The report indicates that e-tolls could possibly be scrapped, or fines dropped by up to 70%.
This will be welcomed the many drivers who, according to a survey, would not even consider paying e-tolls.
As Briefly.co.za reported, majority of those surveyed added that they viewed the system as corrupt.
Seven proposals were put forward by a team that was established by President Ramaphosa to find a solution to the e-tolls problem in Gauteng.
However, a report by jacaranda fm claims the Democratic Alliance (DA) in Gauteng said the African National Congress (ANC) in the province wants to raise income tax in order to pay for e-tolls.
For now, it's all up in the air and the government is expected to make official statements as soon as everything has been settled.
