Sanral's highest compliance was in 2014 at 40% says Outa

The controversial e-toll system seems to be facing a possible total collapse as only a third of Gauteng motorists are paying their e-toll fees.

Sanral told the Sowetan newspaper that compliance levels stood between 30 and 35% over the last twelve months.

Non-profit civil action organisation, Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) believe the numbers are slightly lower than those which Sanral is claiming.

Outa Chairman, Wayne Duvenage says Sanral has failed.

When the government set out this scheme, they tried convincing the courts they would get 93% compliance while our research showed that, that wouldn't happen.

Wayne Duvenage, OUTA Chairman

In fact we thought they would achieve around 60% and that would be a problem because around the world these schemes fail under 80% compliance.

Wayne Duvenage, OUTA Chairman

The reality is that in June 2014, they had their highest compliance they ever had and that was 40%.

Duvenage says the scheme has failed because hardly collected enough money has been collected to pay for the collection process. Nothing is going towards the bonds that they borrowed to widen the roads.

Had Sanral succeeded, they would have generated 21% of their national revenue., he concludes.
