No need to panic over Sanral's summons warning - Outa
Outa says motorists should be careful not to confuse a summons with a final letter of demand.
JOHANNESBURG - The Organisation Uniting against Tax Abuse (Outa) says there's no need to panic after warning's from South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) that it will start issuing summons to motorists who are not paying their e-toll bills.
The roads agency is now trying to collect R7 billion in unpaid e-toll fees since the introduction of the system in December 2013.
It's understood that Sanral will target corporate companies first which have racked up exorbitant bills.
Outa's Wayne Duvenage says motorists should be careful not to confuse a summons with a final letter of demand.
"They would love the public to panic and wonder whether they going to get summonses. Our view is that it's probably not going to be the case. In any case there are over 2 million motorists out there who aren't paying e-tolls. We doubt they will be able to process even 1 percent in under a year."
