The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) says the South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) decision to suspend the collection of all e-toll debt should be taken with a pinch of salt.
OUTA has welcomed the announcement by the Credit Bureaus Association that motorists indebted for not paying their e-toll bills will not be blacklisted.
The African National Congress (ANC) in Gauteng calls on motorists not to panic over threats of blacklisting over e-tolls bills.
Toll fees across South Africa will increase again on March 1, adding yet more financial pain to already embattled consumers.
Gauteng Premier David Makhura says President Cyril Ramaphosa has assured him that the issue of e-tolls is receiving his urgent attention.
