(KMOV) – A speed camera in Charlack is the center of a growing controversy about whether or not individual communities should use them.

Tickets are issued in the mail and cost about $100.
Some authorities say individual communities should not be allowed to use speed cameras.
Charlack’s police chief defends the camera, saying it’s a well-known program.
Others say the camera is just a money grab.
