Justice Project SA is at present apparently preparing a media release/advisory in which they will debunk the claim that one may lose one’s driver’s licence owing to outstanding e-Toll fees. Their communiqué should become available a little later today. It will be most interesting to see what they say about the issue.

Sheesh! Next they'll be going around ripping the eyeballs out of those who don't pay their TV licences....

What we may well end up seeing is thousands upon thousands of people simply driving without a license. I'm sure that will make our roads so much safer.

Business as usual then.

Now that might make for an interesting experiment. It is generally assumed that the legal requirement for a license makes for safer roads. It makes perfect sense that it does too, but does it in fact? Has this ever actually been tested? Perhaps we are about to test it. :-)

As someone who has been driven around middle Africa I assure you: It's a bad idea.

SSSHHHHHHHH! You're giving them ideas!

Here’s JPSA’s write-up on the e-Toll/licence matter. The short of it is that in their current form, the proposed AARTO amendments appear to be unconstitutional; that AARTO currently applies to only ±9% of SA’s registered vehicles; and that there isn’t a single precedent where SANRAL has ever charged anyone for “disobeying a road traffic sign” in the context of the e-Toll system.
