James said his daughter, who is a new driver, had hit a pothole on Rand Airport Road in Germiston. He said she was distraught and in tears.
"Officer Lawrence turned around, came and asked her if she was okay. He then stayed with her until help came, whom was my wife (who can change a spare by the way). When he saw it was another woman, he assisted in the wheel change."

"You lived up to serve and protect by going the extra little bit more. Much appreciated."
