machine tolling

I wonder how our illustrious government is going to deal with drivers on the e-toll road, that hasn’t got e-tags, and are thus tolled by the Automatic Number Plate Recognition System system.

What if, as is very often the case, someone fakes my plates ? Do I now have to contest every single AARTO notice that they may serve ? Must I be imprisoned for six months due to non-payment of a toll? Must I now not use the highway until the dispute is settled ?

“A machine classifies a person as an offender, and you can’t confront your accuser because there is no accuser… can it be wise to establish a principle that when a machine says you did something illegal, you are presumed guilty?”
