In the line of Duty

I came across an interesting news items in one of the dailies (Times of India 17.09.08)
I am reproducing it herebelow with my take on the news item:


An Australian pizza delivery man gave fast food a new meaning when he was caught and fined for driving 53 km over the speed limit. The 20 year old?man, driving on a provisional driver’s license,said he was speeding because he was 20 minutes late with his delivery in Townsville. Police clocked him driving at 131 kms in an 80 kph zone, but waited for him to deliver his pizza before booking him. On his return journey to the pizza shop,he was caught speeding at 133 km in the same zone. The delivery man,who was not named,was fined $1226 and lost his license for 15 months.”

My comments on above news item:

1.Shouldn’t the delivery man’s sense of responsibility towards his customer be rewarded?
2.Can we in the Bank go to such lengths in satisfying our customers?
3.Can our police force ever be so vigilant on the roads?
4.The police waited for the delivery man to make his delivery before booking him. Can we ever imagine of such an incidence in our country??
5.The delivery man was fined heavily and lost his license. Shouldn’t his employers have rewarded him for his exemplary sense of duty?

I would like to have your feedback on my comments.
