(INDIANAPOLIS) - A new survey indicates that motorists in Indiana are buckling up at a record rate of 91.2%.

The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute says that tops last year's record of 88.4%.

Meanwhile, traffic fatalities fell 25% on Indiana roadways from January 1 through July 21 compared with the same period a year ago.

Seven former law enforcement officers in different parts of the state observed nearly 17,000 vehicles between June 2-8.

Their survey followed two weeks of stepped-up efforts by police agencies to enforce Indiana's seat belt law.
