Charlack issues $11,000 worth of tickets in 4 months with new speed camera

(KMOV) -- The city of Charlack raked in more than $11,000 from its speed cameras on Interstate 170 in just four months.

Charlack has issued almost 1,800 tickets, and people see it as a way for the city to get money out of its drivers. City leaders believe having the cameras make the highway safer.

City data shows people driving more than 10 miles an hour over the speed limit has plummeted by more than 80 percent, and drivers going over 20 miles an hour have all but disappeared.

Northbound drivers have had the biggest change. The city clocked more than 900 vehicles per hour were going over the 60 mile per hour speed limit last November, but now that number is way down.

The bottom line: if you don't speed, you have nothing to worry about.
