Traffic Police Jugaad

Driving down to Mumbai last week, we came across an interesting sight - traffic police stopping motorists at the exit toll plaza to quickly check the timing stamped on their tickets from the entry plaza. The idea is simple - the distance between the plazas is known, the timing is calculated, and that gives the average speed - if it's more than the benchmark, you are in for a fine, and there is no argument you can give to escape the fine.

But here's the catch. The expressway food courts are in the middle of the plazas, so no matter how much you speed, if you took a pee and coffee break, you will beat the police at their game.
