(KMOV) -- A St. Ann alderman is fighting a new speeding camera that would be placed along Interstate 70.
Alderman Sherry Hoffman says the plan in embarrassing to St. Ann.
“We have officers in cars. They should be able to take care of what is needed,” Hoffman said.
Police Chief Robert Schroeder says despite issuing over 9,000 speeding tickets since stepping up enforcement last year motorists are still speeding and crashing.
Schroeder says the camera would be mobile and used part time.
The plan still needs to be approved by the Board of Aldermen and MoDOT.
