Dr Odebowale also announced that vehicles used for commercial purposes without the approved colour would be impounded.
Also speaking , the Chairman Ondo state internal revenue, Mr Tolu Adegbie disclosed that eighty percent of drivers in Ondo state from records had no valid drivers license , a situation he said was dangerous for traffic safety.
