The Toll-Road system mentioned in the original post sounds all too familiar for me. I live in South Africa, and there has been a project going on for
the past couple of years to implement a similar per km/mile billing system with toll points scattered all over our freeways.
It would greatly increase the cost of travel for most consumers, and is supposedly to help fund future road network expansions - although we are
already taxed on our petrol/gas for this same purpose.
After some investigation, our journalists uncovered that a private foreign company actually owns a 60% stake in the operation, meaning they will
profit immensely from this venture.

After some investigation, it turns out the company in question is Kapsch. They are also involved in similar projects in the UK from what I have found.
I would like to investigate any links between this company and the Rothschilds, I will start a new thread relating to my findings if anything
significant is found.
Not sure if this is worth adding but, another issue with the toll road system is a violation of basic rights in the terms and conditions of owning an
e-tag (device that identifies your vehicle and bills your bank account). The violation comes from the clause that indicates "... a clause in the
conditions which allowed the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) (might be interesting to investigate any Rothschild links to this
company as well) to get any information from any institution concerning applicants where they had an account, was a gross violation of consumers'
right to privacy." See article: mg.co.za...
Fortunately there has been a massive outcry around these tolls and they have been delayed many times due to protests. Our biggest trade union (COSATU)
has also vowed to go on a massive strike should the toll system become operational.
