How to ‘break the chain’ that leads to tragic accidents: Don’t drink and drive

I am writing in response to the local Viewpoint by Mike Bennett (“Another cyclist has died in San Luis Obispo County; it’s time to act,” Sept. 2) regarding the fatal accidents on Aug. 29. One was on Foothill Boulevard and the other on the Cuesta Grade.

You say you spent some time thinking about what would have broken the chain of events that led to these deaths and you go on to mention many positives and negatives. I agreed with all of them.

However, I was so surprised when I noticed that you did not mention the most important instruction: Do not drink and drive and do not allow those you are with to drink and drive!
