Last winter a medical school graduate nearly lost a leg following a late night collision with a car on Lake Shore Drive while riding a Divvy bike. The problem is that the bicycle rider was the one who was intoxicated!

Our society is complacent about the effects of alcohol on the operation of any vehicle. Our bicycle clubs have ‘Beer is the Answer‘ as their informal mottos. And yet we want to dismember motorists who evidently have the same cavalier attitude towards drinking that we do as bicyclists.

Enough is enough!
