The Illinois Tollway has a new system for cleaning its toll cameras making it easier to catch those trying to avoid paying tolls.

Tollway officials say their remote-controlled camera lens cleaning system is the first of its kind in the United States.

It's a power washer consisting of jet nozzles and hoses to clean the lens, and then followed by a blast of air to dry it.
