According to the South African National Roads Agency, the majority of motorists will only pay R100 a month in e-tolls.

Sanral head of communications Vusi Mona, said e-tolling will not cost motorists a fortune, as 82.83% of motorists will only pay R100 a month, according to calculations done over a two-month period using plate recognition technology.

Mona said, “Of the 2.5 million vehicles checked in this manner, only 4 700 will pay the capped R450 a month… If you are one of those paying the maximum amount, you will have travelled through 301 gantries and done an average of 2 760 km during the month on the e-tolled roads.

“That is, of course, if you are fitted with an e-tag and have an up-to-date registered account. If not, it will cost almost double,” he said.

What motorists will pay monthly:

  • 82.83% will pay less than a R100
  • 10.10% will pay R101 – R200
  • 1.82% will pay R201 – R300
  • 0.59% will pay R300 – R450

“Public transport operators can apply for exemption. Visitors from outside Gauteng will have to pay tolls. Duplicate or cloned number plates will be picked by the e-toll system because an e-tag is registered to one number plate only,” said Mona.
