There will be irreparable harm to motorists if the e-toll regulations are not declared invalid, the FF Plus argued in the High Court in Pretoria on Monday.
“Motorists will be prejudiced,” the Freedom Front Plus's legal counsel said.
“If tomorrow 8e-tolling commences, it will mean the members of the public will be criminally prosecuted.. and have judgments taken against them.”
The court heard there were a lot of affidavits to process, and a special judge should have been requested. The party's counsel argued that if the application was delayed, it would cause harm.
He said it would be easier to delay e-tolling for two or three weeks, so that all the papers could be properly examined.
