How should we be financing our freeways?

  • Increase VAT. That way everybody pays for it and not just the rich. Tax is too progressive already and VAT is more difficult to dodge. (50%, 1 Votes)
  • The eTolls infrastructure has already been built. It's an imperfect system, but since we've spent the money already we may as well use it. (50%, 1 Votes)
  • A one-off wealth-tax could raise enough money to pay for the roads and decrease income inequality. It might hurt, but the positive benefits in the medium term would be worth it. (0%, 0 Votes)
  • Government should borrow additional money to pay for it. Our children can deal with the problem - we have enough of our own. (0%, 0 Votes)
  • Why should we pay for something we didn't ask for? Government didn't have a mandate to spend that much money on roads. I don't care about the consequences, I'm not paying (0%, 0 Votes)
  • Increase my income tax. Roads should be paid for through general government revenues anyway and the rich should pay more since they can afford it. (0%, 0 Votes)
  • A Fuel Levy would be more efficient and encourage fuel efficiency, lower pollution (0%, 0 Votes)
  • The eTolls are appropriate - pay for use. Why should drivers outside Gauteng pay for Gauteng freeways through a fuel levy or income tax? Now we must leverage the eTolls system to greater benefit (0%, 0 Votes)
  • Licence renewal fees should go up. That way we can tailor the cost to the type of vehicle and its impact on the road without fancy eTolls. (0%, 0 Votes)
