DNR QUESTION OF THE WEEK ,,,,, Q: Loons are nesting now and, as a result, can be espe- cially vulnerable at this time of the year. What should anglers and boaters know as they take to the lakes? A: Loons began nesting in early May. Like many wildlife, loons are very sensitive to disturbance. Boats, including per- sonal watercraft, canoes, and kayaks, passing too closely to a nest may cause the adults to leave the nest and expose the eggs to predators like raccoons, crows, and gulls. The two most traumatic times of the year for loons are Memorial Day weekend, when the adults are sitting on their nests, and the Fourth of July weekend, when the adults are with their young. Boaters can help the long-term survival of Minnesota's state bird by avoiding nesting sites and looking out for loons while out fishing or boating. Minnesota's loon population is about 12,000 and appears stable. Ticketi )torists for sea00gb0000 violations The Minnesota primary seat belt law requires drivers and all passengers to be buckled up or in the correct child restraint or booster seat. Law enforcement officers will stop and ticket motorists for seat belt violations -- including unbelted passen- gers. Properly wearing a seat belt reduces the risk of fatal injury to front seat passenger occupants by 45 percent in a car and 60 percent in a light truck. Seat belts are the most effective means of protecting oneself from injury while rid- ing in a vehicle. In a crash, odds are six- times greater for injury if a motorist is not buckled up. An unbelted motorist can crash into a windshield and slam into and injure other passengers. Often, an unbelt- ed motorist is ejected from the vehicle and killed. Seat belts restrain motorists in the vehicle's designed protective space, giving them room to live in the event of a crash. *Minnesota law enforce- ment agencies will increase seat belt patrols in May. Bottom line: click it or ticket. A seat belt ticket can cost more than $100 with court and administrative fees. *Minnesota has a primary seat belt law that requires drivers and all passengers, even in the back, to be buck- led up. Law enforcement can ticket anyone in a vehicle that is not belted. *We don't want to write tickets -- we ask that you enforce the law in your vehi- cle. Insist that everyone buckles up. Use your voice and speak up every time you ride with friends. *A seat belt is the best defense on roads full of uncertainties: including speeding, distracted and impaired drivers. You may be a safe driver -- but is the driver next to you? Buckle up and protect yourself. *Let's debunk a myth that wearing a seat belt only hurts those that don't buckle up. Often during a crash, unbelt- ed occupants will slam into, injure and sometimes even cause death to the other pas- sengers. That means buckle up every seat, every time -- it's the law. *Also, unbelted motorists killed and injured cost Minnesotans hundreds ' of millions of doll,s over the years. That means everyone is paying for those unbuckled persons killed or injured in a crash. *Teens and young adults are the group that most often rides unbelted. As a result, these groups are most often killed in crashes. Last spring in Minnesota, we suffered a rash of unbelted teens in a series of deadly crashes. *Another at-risk group is young adult, male pick-up truck drivers. Your truck may be tough, but you still have to buckle up.' *There are four things that are likely to save your life while operating a vehicle on Minnesota roads: buckle up, driver sober, pay attention, and drive at safe speeds. * Belt use during daytime is at a record-high 92 percent. Still, about one-half of vehi- cle occupants killed are unbuckled.
