Motorists who default on paying for E-tolls in danger of losing their license

Thousands of motorists who default on paying for e-tolls are in danger of losing their licenses, should the law relating to the controversial Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences (AARTO) Bill come into effect.

Public hearings on the amendments were held in Tshwane last week.

The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) is dissatisfied with the outcomes of the hearing.

The organisation's Portfolio Manager for Transport, Rudie Heyneke says the bill still needs to go through the Council of Provinces.

We don't believe that it is going to pass the constitutional muster and the practicalities required of it in due course, so it is not necessarily going to happen, it is a very flawed bill at the moment,

Rudie Heyneke, Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa)

The wording of the bill requires that they bypass the constitutional rights that you have to defend yourself in the event that you have a traffic fine. Just the wording makes it impractical to apply, we believe the scheme will fail over time.
