Illinois drivers are buckling up more than ever.

Governor Pat Quinn says more than 90 percent of front-seat passengers are using their seat belts.

That's an increase from last June.

Quinn credits a state law giving police authority to pull over someone not wearing a seat belt in the passenger seat.

He also reminded residents to drive safely during this holiday weekend.
