Illinois Tollway implements remote-controlled camera lens cleaning system

Illinois_Tollway_logoOne agency is improving its toll collections by simply keeping its cameras cleaner.

The Illinois Tollway has implemented a new remote-controlled camera lens cleaning system, WLS-TV reports.

The system — a first in the U.S. — features a power washer with jet nozzles and hoses that cleans the lens. A blast of air then dries the camera.

According to the report, the system will help the Tollway catch drivers who try to avoid paying tolls.
