(KMOV) -- If you drive on Interstate 170 through North County, watch out for a new speed camera.
On Friday, the city of Charlack is unveiling plans for a speed camera to catch speeders in the northbound lanes of 170. The camera will go up by the end of March and will be on the east side of the interstate on private property. It will look over a quarter mile stretch of I-170.
The police chief in Charlack plans a two-week warning period when the camera goes live on March 29th. When the warning period is over, each ticket will cost $100 and is mailed to the registered owner of the car.
The chieft says it is designed to catch what he calls excessive speeders. The City of Charlack along with the Missouri Department of Transportation will be putting up signs along the quarter-mile stretch to warn drivers of the camera.
MoDOT says this is the first speed camera on a state owned highway.
