Motorists will be fined for not paying e-tolls under Aarto
25 August 2019
The Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences Amendment Act (Aarto) which was recently signed into law indicates that operator class vehicles will be fined R500 for every e-toll gantry it passes without paying e-tolls.
This means that the driver will lose one demerit point for a fine of R500.
This law is putting businesses at risk as truck drivers working for small businesses could lose their jobs because their licences will be suspended for three years if the fines are not paid.
During the suspension period or while a single enforcement order is in place the driver will not be allowed to renew their vehicle licence disc, driving licence card and professional driving permit.
