If the probability of observing a car (read: at least one car) in 20 minutes on a highway is 609/625, what is the probability of observing a car (read: at least one) in 5 minutes (assuming constant default probability)?

It could be argued that SilverKnight's refusal to change the wording of the puzzle that he found on the Internet, reflects his honesty and integrity. SilverKnight is, after all, a Knight, and I am a Knave at best.
