At about 4:45pm on Tuesday 12th April 2011, a female resident of West Grand Bahama, was driving her gold Chrysler car # 40929, west along the Fishing Hole Road and upon entering the roundabout in the vicinity of the Grand Bahama Shipyard, her vehicle's engine overheated and shut down, leaving the driver and her three passengers, stranded.
Shortly afterward, Mr Hansel Rolle Jr of Holmes Rock, passed by in his white and black Taxi van # 527 and upon noticing the lady and her passengers stranded at the roadside, immediately pulled over and stopped to assist.
After ascertaining the problem, Mr Rolle was able to get the vehicle re-started and the lady and her passengers continued on their journey into West Grand Bahama.
As a result of his considerate action in assisting a fellow motorist in distress, Mr Rolle was nominated to receive the Most Courteous Driver of The Quarter Award for March 2011. He was presented with an inscribed mahogany plaque and a gift certificate for a full tank of gasoline.
