      We started from Electronic City by 1:15 pm and reached Palakkad by 7:15 pm, total 6 hours drive including 3 breaks for lunch, tea and snacks. Road condition is excellent excluding Coimbatore bypass, which has clogged traffic, 2-3 traffic signals, numerous crossings and 6 toll gates. Terrible planning I would say.

      Definitely helps all the way till the toll plaza after Walayar checkpost. Fastag is worthless at Paliyekkara toll, Thrissur as there is no dedicated lane.

      If you are asking about the L&T section at CBE, then the answer is no. Fastag doesn't work there.

      Thanks. My query was on the tolls from BLR till CBE. Many times I found that the fastag lanes are occupied heavily, and at times scanning is not done properly!

      By non-Fastag vehicles? Not anymore, it's exclusive now

      Handheld device scanning at the toll after Walayar. Other than that it was all the ones at the plazas, when I went to Kochi and back last month.

      Crawl through the lane when you are about to be read and keep a car's length from the vehicle in front of you. Should work or may be it was beginner's luck for me.

      When was the last time you traveled this section with Fastag?

      EDIT: You would find most of the Fastag lanes barricaded now. Look closely would find a guy sitting in the sun barely under shade, who would open it once he verifies you have a tag. This was the case at most toll plazas in TN.
