Illinois has a new, caped crusader. His mission - to help drivers avoid traffic tie-ups. Captain Crusader is the Illinois Toll Highway Authority's new mascot. He's part of the agency's 'Know Before You Go' campaign. It's designed to remind drivers to get information on road construction and congestion before getting behind the wheel.

Captain Tollway will also appear in coloring books and on crayons available at tollway oases.
