JOHANNESBURG – Treasury is seemingly switching lanes when it comes to e-tolls.

Defaulting Gauteng motorists may not have gotten off scot-free.

Treasury wants them to still pay up, despite the decision to scrap the system.

It says the provincial government and Sanral should come up with ways to collect the debt.

Outa’s Stefanie Fick said collecting debt is not as easy as it sounds.

“It’s so confusing with the different departments giving us different stories, so one really wonders what on earth is going on,” she said.

“But here’s the reality. Motorists have spoken, saying said they will not pay for this corrupt scheme.

“But even if they’re going to continue with this rhetoric of people should pay, they should remember Outa said from the start that if people get summonsed for e-toll debt, we will defend them.”
