Johannesburg - Frustrated motorists who finally decided to cave in and pay their e-toll arrears in terms of the new tariff dispensation have been told they still have to pay full fees.
Sanral says the 60 percent discount on arrears will only be implemented within the next two months after the Minister of Transport determines the date on which the new tariffs will be gazetted.
Only the new monthly cap of R225 and the new lowered toll tariffs started on July 2.
Vusi Mona, general manager of communications for the South African National Roads Agency says the rest of the changes will be implemented in a phased roll-out over the next 17 months, including the linking of the renewal of the vehicle to the non-payment of tolls.
Mona said this was made clear in an explanatory memorandum which was included in the toll tariff notice gazette in which it was explained that it would not happen on July 2.
