Law enforcement are reminding drivers to buckle up this summer.
Officers will begin their summer Click-it or Ticket campaign – looking for anyone on the road not wearing seatbelts.
Officials say teenagers and young adults are the group who are most often found to not wear seatbelts.
The Governor’s office says 78 people have died in traffic crashes this year on New Mexico roads, many of those people were not buckled up.

Conflicting messages about the hazy seen over Albuquerque today.
The City of Albuquerque issued an air-quality alert Friday morning blaming hazy skies on smoke from a prescribed burn in the Gila – but officials with the Gila National Forest said they had no prescribed burns. The city then said the haze could be due to a wildfire burning in Arizona.
But the National Weather Service says, no, the haze is not smoke but rather humidity – making a rare appearance in New Mexico.
KRQE News 13′s David Romero will have more on the story on KRQE News 13 at noon. Stay tuned.

The portions of the Bosque that fall within the city of Rio Rancho’s limits will be closed to the public effective at 8 a.m. on Monday, May 27, 2013, and will remain closed until further notice.
High temperatures, low humidity, and a lack of rainfall have caused tinder-dry vegetation in the Rio Rancho Bosque area. These conditions have created an extremely high fire danger.
The full closure of the Bosque means that all paths, ditch roads near the Bosque, and the forest (trees) are closed to all visitors and users.
