It is illegal for a driver to refuse to carry a passenger who is accompanied by a guide dog or other assistance animal in Queensland.
When you give a ride to a passenger with a guide dog, follow these simple tips:
- Do not separate the dog from their owner - the passenger usually sits in the front seat with the guide dog on the floor
- Do not pat the dog or try to feed it, and do not give the dog any instructions
- Assist the passenger only if they request additional help.
