If you were traveling on the 3700 block of Seward Avenue Friday you might have encountered an unexpected stop.

Deputies with the Shawnee County Sheriff's office set up shop to make sure drivers were wearing their seatbelts and had a valid driver's license. The check started at 2:30pm and lasted till 4:30pm Friday.

Deputies say the main focus is to deter drivers from driving without their seatbelts and making sure they have an up to date driver's license.

During the check lane enforcement, 132 cars were stopped. Every driver had their driver's license in their possession and ALL drivers had valid licenses. All drivers were properly wearing their seatbelts and deputies observed about 25 to 30 children under the age of 14 who were all properly restrained. No arrests were made and no citations were issued.
