Candy discs rumored to be indistinguishable from United States quarters (US$0.25 coins) by the mechanical coin counters deployed by the Illinois Tollway Authority. It is said that one could throw two Necco Wafers into the basket of an toll plaza's automatic lanes, and the gate would rise as if you'd thrown in fifty cents. If this ever did work, it should now be avoided. These toll collection baskets have always had windows to allow walking toll-takers to verify someone had thrown in the correct toll if the gate did not open. In recent years, video cameras have been installed to catch toll violators, and they include a view of these windows. Throw wafers in now and you'll shortly receive a mobile visit from the Illinois State Police.
