Outa slams plans to make e-tolls traffic violations in demerit system
The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) has slammed new amendments to the pending demerit licensing system that would include the non-payment of e-tolls as a traffic violation.
Outa chairman Wayne Duvenage on Monday said the the plans would further drive a wedge between the motoring public and government.
He added that the proposed amendment to the Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences Act was a sneaky way to change legislation without substantial public engagement.
