CHARLACK — Drivers who speed on Interstate 170 through the St. Louis County town of Charlack could soon be receiving $100 tickets in the mail.
The town plans to install a camera by the end of this month along a quarter-mile stretch of the highway. Charlack Police Chief Tony Umbertino said the goal is to improve safety for officers and other drivers.
But St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he questions whether the camera is for safety or to bring in revenue.
Speeders caught on camera will get only warnings for the first two weeks the camera is in use and then will get a ticket after that. No points will be deducted from the licenses of speeders caught on the camera.
