DCPO spokesperson Chief Inspector Milgrace Driz said the recognition for the honest drivers is part of the program of the DCPO to encourage taxi drivers to emulate their colleagues and to encourage the passengers, as well, to ride the cabs in Davao.

She said the drivers have returned valuable items such as documents, wallets, and phones.

“Taxi drivers are supposed to be among the front liners in public service because they interact with passengers everywhere,” Driz told Davao Today.

Driz said the list of drivers included in this month’s recognitions were based from the list of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board, media reports and those who were posted in social media accounts by their passengers.(davaotoday.com)
