Hyderabad: Madhapur traffic police falling under Cyberabad Commissionerate fined TRS MLA Mynampally Hanumanth Rao's son Mynampally Rohith for three traffic violations on Durgam Cheruvu Cable Bridge.

The violation came to light when the TRS MLAs son's picture on Durgam Cheruvu went viral on 8th November.

The Malkajgiri MLA's son has been fined for cell phone driving Rs 1000, wrong number plate Rs 100 and stopping on the carriageway Rs 200.

Till October 17 Cyberabad Traffic Police has registered 1851 cases against motorists and civilians for various offences.

Violators were fined for halting on the main carriageway, not wearing helmets, triple riding, using cell phones while driving, disobedience, dangerous driving, and unauthorized parking on the cable bridge.

"People should travel responsibly. Good roads and good flyover will not ensure safety. Only good driving skills can make a difference. Over speeding and drunk driving are major reasons for road accidents in the city, which we are now being observed on the bridge also," said AR Srinivas, DCP (traffic), Cyberabad.

The landmark bridge was thrown open for the public on September 25, but it seems to have become a hub for traffic violations despite instructions by the city traffic police.

On October 8, Madhapur police arrested three including a juvenile for taking pictures on the bridge. The video of the trio went viral on social media.

The bridge provides direct connectivity to the public from Jubliee hills, Banjara hills and other parts of city going towards Hitec-city, Gachibowli, ORR and Shamshabad. In view of this, the GHMC has decided to allow the general public on weekends on the bridge by stopping the vehicular movement.
