    Default Sanral - GFIP - Visitors

    I saw this SANRAL document in the newspaper this morning regarding the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project.

    Not much info there for visitors using the upgraded roads. I did find the following on their web page:
    Road signs will warn visitors to Gauteng to phone or visit the Customer Care centre to register or to obtain a Day Pass. Should a road user make use of the network without registering, they will receive an invoice and be given a set time to pay the toll fees. Should the toll fees not be paid within the set period, additional debt collection and enforcement actions will take place.

    What is the status on visitors? How will work in practice? Will there be Customer Care Centres where I can pay my toll when leaving the network?

    Somebody hasnt thought this thru. After travelling hundreds of kilos and many hours I am going to go and find a customer care centre. Or while I am in the fast lane on the R21 or M1 I am going to dig into my pocket and find my credit card and use my cell phone to contact the Call Centre.

    Yeh right.

    They will be processing litteraly thousands of out of town cars per day. And they are going to invoke debt collection and law enforcement.

    Good luck.

    I believe this system is based on the Australian system as used in Sydney and Melbourne. Driving around as a visitor I had no idea of which zone's I had passed through so I bought an all zones pass for the day to ensure I had all the basses covered. In OZ the pass can be bought at most fuel stations.

    But in Aus everything works and most of the cash is not stolen. A pleasure to pay.

    Everything is a hammer.
    Unless it is a screw driver.

    Then it it a chisel.
