Ondo state House of Assembly has implored motorists and road users in the state to make judicious use of the computerized vehicle Inspection centre when commissioned in assessing their vehicles to reduce road accidents on the highways.

The Chairman, committee on public utilities and transport, Mr. Abayomi Akinruntan made the remark during an oversight function with delegation from the house of Assembly round the newly renovated Computerized vehicle center to ascertain the level of work done and why people of Ondo state should patronize the facility.

In the past, manual checking of vehicles had been in vogue, but due to the nature of the Nigerian condition, unserviceable vehicles oozing out hazardous gases still remained very much in operations.

With the newly renovated  Ondo state Computerized vehicle inspection centre conceived under public-private partnership arrangement, rickety vehicles which are not roadworthy will be a thing of the past in the state.
