TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Department of Transportation is enlisting professional athletes as part of a new anti-litter campaign.

The campaign launched Friday will include Jacksonville Jaguars safety Johnathan Cyprien, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline, Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Mike James, golfer Kenny Knox and NASCAR driver Scott Lagasse, Jr. will take part in the campaign.
