<p>The Different Ways in Which to Register for an e-Tag
As South Africans, we are all aware of the controversy that surrounds e-Tolls and the cost they bring
to commuters. Although the monthly fee is not exorbitant, many road users feel that they are being
cheated â€“ especially since salaries and petrol levies are taxed in the name of â€˜road maintenance and
SANRALâ€™. Added to your existing costs of vehicle insurance and other monthly payments, an added
cost is the last thing that any local driver hopes for. However, as the noise surrounding these
highway eyesores gets louder, it is becoming more popular to register for an e-Tag.
SANRAL, in an effort to boost commuter morale, have taken the liberty of adding an e-Toll booth in
every second shopping mall, which makes it simple to sign up and register for their tags. Growing
demand also means that there are bound to be queues, which very few people have time to endure.
Thankfully, the South African public has also been given the opportunity to order their tags online,
which streamlines the process. Regardless of your approach to politics and the local economy, a tag
could save you a substantial sum of money at the end of each month. Here is how you go about
registering for an e-Tag:
Firstly, What is an e-Tag?
Designed to record your road activity on Gautengâ€™s highways, an e-Tag is a small electronic device
that is fitted to the inside of your vehicle, either on the top of your windscreen or on your
dashboard. The tag is linked to both your number plate and your e-Toll account which is either
payable monthly or, if you would rather avoid monthly payments, you can credit the device with a
certain amount of money each month. As you drive through an e-Toll, the relevant money will be
debited off of the deviceâ€™s credit.
Where Can I Sign Up?
Forget about queues, and think about quick and efficient service! You will be able to sign up for an e-
Tag and an e-Toll account at one of the following:
