CHARLACK — The suburban St. Louis town of Charlack has placed a camera to catch those speeding through the community on Interstate 170.
KTVI-TV reports the camera was set up last week on the Lackland overpass.
Those caught driving more than 70 mph could face fines of $100, though points will not be assessed. The ticket goes to the car's owner, regardless of the driver.
The camera could generate hundreds of thousands of dollars for Charlack, though city officials say the goal is safety, not revenue.
St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch says he is not opposed to cameras, but worries about how they are implemented. He believes the state — not local government — should oversee their use.
