With the Memorial Day Weekend and prom season approaching, New York state is reminding people about the importance of wearing a seat beat.

The Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee kicked off the annual "Buckle Up New York, Click It or Ticket" enforcement campaign in Rensselaer on Thursday.

Troopers, deputies and local law enforcement will be out there in marked and unmarked troop cars looking for the un-belted riders.

The "Buckle Up New York" campaign runs through June 5.
