Dr Oyeyemi said the commission would collaborate with the company on the introduction of Drink Driving E- learning in the driving school scheme, FRSC training institute and driving license renewal process to Educate road users.
Dr Oyeyemi while commending the Company for its support maintained that the Commission would continue to accept innovations that would bring effective traffic control and reduce road accidents in the country.

Mr Odusola pledged the company’s resolve to join FRSC in its capacity building and sensitisation programs with stakeholders in the transport sector to bring sanity to the roads.
