A Brisbane taxi driver has been commended for his honesty and integrity as he took it upon himself to track down a member of the public and return to them a lost bag containing $6,000.
This comes after weeks of misconduct by Brisbane’s ride-booking drivers towards their passengers.
Last month, Atambeer Singh spotted the bag sitting atop of another vehicle and retrieved it after it had slid off the roof into the middle of a busy intersection.
He tried everything before finally turning to social media to return the bag to its very grateful owner.
Taxi Council of Queensland (TCQ) CEO Blair Davies was full of praise for Mr Singh’s actions and his commitment to helping a complete stranger.
“Here we have a local taxi driver going above and beyond to do the right thing and help someone out,” said Mr Davies.
“This is the type of conduct we expect of all Queensland taxi drivers and Atambeer’s actions epitomizes our industry’s core values of professionalism and honesty.”
“It’s just another great example of the outstanding service that Queensland taxi drivers aim to deliver for all members of the community.
