Actress Menaka Maduwanthi was fined Rs. 5,000 by the Bandaragama Magistrate Court today for reckless driving after a video of her taking her hands off the wheel while driving on the Southern Expressway went viral recently.

The video shot while driving along the Southern Expressway shows the actress taking her hands off the wheel to execute several dance moves while she drove.

Police filed legal action after some viewers lodged complaints on the “Tell President” hot line after the video went viral.

    You are supposed to keep your both hands on the steering wheel throughout the journey.If you want to dance find a suitable place for it. The Highway is not the place for performing a dance!

    Law must be amended to minimum of Rs.100,000.00 driving licence cancellation of 5 years jail term for reckless driving. Sri Lanka may be able to save lot of innocent lives as well as traffic congestion.

    Cheap actress, cheap act. This is when a classless person gets to handle something classy.
