A LOCAL motorist has restored faith in the Good Samaritan credentials of the region.

When Regency Downs resident Lois O'Brien broke down at a set of traffic lights in Plainland on Friday, she thought she was in for a long night.

However, a considerate motorist pulled over to come to her aid.

"I was surprised he was so quick to pull over," Mrs O'Brien said.

"I thought I'd fix it myself and was trying to do it when he pulled up.

"He had jumper leads and I got going and he went off."

However, this wasn't the end of Lois's night, or surprising run of good luck.

"My car stopped again and the best thing was, he came back," she said.

"What got me was the second time. He'd gone through the lights and the next thing he is back again."

Mrs O'Brien said she had been travelling to Laidley to play bingo and if it wasn't for the kind-hearted motorist she would have been stuck.

"I just want to sincerely thank him," she said.
