That is it, a detailed look at the latest when it comes to toll gate and vehicle license fees.
I was just looking at the the figures for those in the 10 km radius and I have noted that if’s cheaper to pay on daily basis. When paying monthly one will be paying double the amount as compared to the one paying daily.
Under normal circumstances you would think paying monthly should be cheaper but izvi ndezvekungovharans
Interesting observation. I think they have studied their data and see where the frequency is. This is a cash cow for them.
