Toss this toll

The proposal to toll Gauteng's highways must be scrapped without delay.

The proposal to toll Gauteng's highways must be scrapped without delay.

Consumers are reeling under rising interest rates and transport costs. Unemployment is soaring and parents are struggling to pay for their children's education.

Tolling Gauteng' s highways is unacceptable. It will aggravate the plight of the poor.

Transport Minister Jeff Radebe is expected to decide soon on the proposals.

The government should confine itself to developing effective strategies to reduce the number of fatalities on our roads instead of making more money from an already burdened society.

We hope he will listen to the voices of the people and reject the proposal which, if accepted, will bring more misery to already stressed - and stretched - consumers.
