E-toll fees are not obligated to be paid because nothing has been gazetted in terms of the new legislation, says the Automobile Association.

The Automobile Association is warning motorists that there is no requirement as yet to pay outstanding e-toll fees before renewing a vehicle licence disc.

The association was responding to reports that Pretoria advocate Anton Boswel was told a warrant of arrest had been issued against him because of unpaid e-toll infringements and he could therefore not renew his vehicle licence disc.

“Well, Sanral has said that it would take up to 18 months for this to be promulgated. So at this stage, nothing has been gazetted in terms of the new legislation. So, there is no legislation at the moment governing this. It’s still in the pipeline, it is coming and according to Sanral, it’s going to take 18 months, that’s all we know at this moment,” says Automobile Association spokesperson Layton Beard.
