Nestlé Pakistan signed an agreement with National Highways & Motorway Police as part of its continued commitment to enhance Drivers Safety through training. The accord signed between the two organizations in this regard will be used for the expansion of the Driver Training Institute in Sheikhupura.
Signed between Ian Donald, Managing Director Nestlé Pakistan and Jahanzeb Khan Jogezai , Commandant National Highways & Motorway Police in the first week of August 2011, the agreement will further strengthen the institute’s ability to impart safe traffic and driving education. This is the fourth such round of support by Nestlé Pakistan to the drivers safety training institute. In the past Nestlé Pakistan has contributed significantly to the institute for construction of the Driver Training Track, Training Hall and a Driver Training Simulator. Construction of the new training hall will allow participants to acquire specialized driving practices and would curb accident rates on motorway through requisite skills that will be gained during the training period.
Lack of proper knowledge, awareness of safe driving practices and procedures is one of the major causes of accidents on the highway. The ongoing support of Nestlé Pakistan has allowed the Motorway Driver Training Institute to impart training to more than 1,000 drivers. Nestlé Pakistan’s support to the institute reinforces its emphasis on the safety and well-being of the communities it operates in and highlights focus on driver training to ensure safety of the general public
