The Motor Vehicles Amendment Act has waded into controversy with multiple states accusing the Centre of burdening the common man with heavy fines. The Act, which came into effect from September 1, aims at stricter punishment for violation of traffic regulations and to bring discipline on roads. On seeing this latest Instagram story of actress Lavanya, no citizen took it seriously it seems.
Actress Lavanya who is known among Tamil audience for pairing up with Actor/Director Sasikumar in the 2014 movie Bramman, shared a picture of a two wheeler carrying two women, one man and a child, waiting at the traffic. We can see one of the two women, talking on phone and the other one carrying a child.

Being an actress, Lavanya Tripathi is also a model and dancer who predominantly works in Telugu film industry. After working as a model and won the Miss Uttarakhand title in 2006, she entered the film industry in 2012, with the Telugu film, Andala Rakshasi.
In 2014, she made her debut in Tamil cinema with Brahman in which she played an aspiring journalist, Gayathri. Reports suggests that Lavanya was the first choice for Vijay Sethupathi-Nayanthara starrer Naanum Rowdy Thaan which was directed by Vignesh Shivan. Unfortunately she was removed from the film when a new production studio took over the project.
As far as the new traffic rules are concerned, from higher penalties for driving errors to imprisonment up to one month for racing and speeding; and up to six months for offences relating to accidents. Some of the penalty amounts have even crossed the Rs 80,000 mark. It seems it is going to take a few more months for people to be completely aware of these new punishments which is the only way to avoid such kind of activities.
