After almost a year of not collecting fees from vehicles passing through the Umvoti and Othongathi toll gates in the north of Durban in KwaZulu-Natal, Sanral has announced that would come to an end in nine days' time.

Do you travel much across the country? which destination in South Africa has the most toll gates? which route do you feel like you go through too many toll gates?
