LURAY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Rangers in the Shenandoah National Park are reminding drivers and passengers to buckle up.

The national park’s law enforcement officers will be working with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as part of the Click It or Ticket campaign.

According to a release, this year’s national seat belt enforcement campaign coincides with the Memorial Day holiday weekend, running from May 20 to June 2.

“We want seat belt use to be an automatic habit for drivers and passengers,” said Chief Ranger Cynthia Sirk-Fear. “Buckling up is the simplest thing you can do to limit injury or save your life during a crash. We see the results of not wearing a seat belt all the time. So often, it could have been prevented.”

The release says one of this year’s campaign’s focuses will be nighttime enforcement, because NHTSA data shows a higher number of unrestrained passenger vehicle occupant fatalities happen at night.

“If the enforcement effort alerts people to the dangers of unrestrained driving, we’ll consider our mission to be a success,” said Sirk-Fear. “If you know a friend or a family member who does not buckle up when they drive, please ask them to consider changing their habits. Seat belts save lives, and everyone — front seat and back, child and adult — needs to remember to buckle up.”
