      KERSHAW COUNTY, SC (WACH) - If your driving skills need some work, Kershaw County wasn't the place for you to be this weekend.

      Last week, WACH Fox News reported the South Carolina Highway Patrol and the Kershaw County Sheriff's Department teamed up in an enforcement blitz over the weekend.

      Trooper Billy Elder reported the highway patrol issued 726 citations including 5 DUI'S, 400 speeding tickets and 149 tickets for "no seat belts." Elder said the Highway Patrol also worked 10 accidents, but none were deadly.

      Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews said the enforcement blitz ended Saturday with no deaths or serious injuries to drivers or citizens.
