The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning on Wednesday released results of a Wayne State University Transportation Research Group survey conducted over the summer. For the second consecutive year, it found 93 percent of drivers and front seat passengers buckled up.

According to the findings, the state says there was an overall marginal decrease of 0.6 percent from 2012 in the statewide seatbelt use rate.
