I was surprised to learn yesterday that a 33-year old male cyclist was killed last Tuesday by a intoxicated 23-year old female driver on the coast route between Dana Point and San Clemente. I was told about about 1-2 minutes before driving by the very spot. As a cyclist, you would have felt very safe there except that it was at 9:30 p.m.
I've seen drivers pull over along that stretch and puke along the side of the road during the daytime hours. Drunken bastards take the coast because they're afraid of getting popped on the fwy and now a poor cyclist pays the price for that kind of thoughtless negligence. A couple of women joggers paid the price in the same area just weeks ago.
