The e-toll system has failed from day one - Outa
Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) CEO Wayne Duvenage says e-tolls have failed from day one and that there is a lack of attention to that reality.
Delivering his Mid-Term-Budget Policy Statement on Wednesday, Finance Minister Tito Mboweni announced that the e-tolls system will remain in its current form.
He said the decision was taken after consultation with key players in the transport sector.
Duvenage says there must be more efficient mechanisms used to pay for road infrastructure.
There has been six years of empirical evidence that the scheme has failed...why are only 20% and not 90% of people paying?Wayne Duvenage, CEO - Outa
We know that we have got to pay for infrastructure but if there are mechanisms to do so that are far more efficient for users to pay, like fuel levies and taxes, then that is the mechanism.Wayne Duvenage, CEO - Outa
There is a lack of attention to the reality of a failed scheme. You cannot keep beating an issue that has failed. What are you going to do about it is the real question.Wayne Duvenage, CEO - Outa
