Here's what to do:
- On the day tolling starts, every taxi, bus, truck and car should make for an onramp to one of the tolled freeways and stop. Block it. Have a taxi strike, bus strike, whatever.
- In the coming municipal elections, find where candidates stand on the tolled freeways, and don't vote for any candidate or party that supports tolling. Vote for those who oppose it.
What's the ANC's excuse?
The fairest way of paying for roads is a fuel levy -- the more you use the roads, the more fuel you use, and the more you pay. The new Gauteng toll system places an unneccessarily heavy burden on those who have to travel to work, whether they travel by car, bus or taxi.

Don't take it lying down. At the other end of the continent, the people of Egypt are not letting the fat cats get away with it. Why should we let them get away with it here?
