Help with cfform validation

I have a registration process that loops through different options to present them to the user for selection of either "Yes" or "No" in a cfform.  The code is attached below.

Some details:
option_id is an integer

The problem I'm having is that even if I select "Yes" or "No" from the item list, the coldfusion keeps throwing an alert at me "You must select an answer for each addon group."  I don't know why it won't validate this form.  

I have attached my code as well as the code coldfusion outputs to validate the form when the site is live.  The form field in question is numbered "1" for the option_id.  Any ideas?

Thanks.

By default, required attribute in cfinput is no, so you don't really need to specify it..

<cfinput type="radio" name="#option_id#" value="Yes" required="no" message="You must select an answer for each addon group.">Yes
<cfinput type="radio" name="#option_id#" value="No" required="no" message="You must select an answer for each addon group.">No

Don't enter  "/>" end tag in your cfinput... they have the same name...

Thanks for your replies.  Neither of those suggestions achieved my desired effect.  I need the form to validate each radio group in the loop, but for some reason it keeps asking even when a selection in that group is made.  The code outputs in the browser as follows (attached). and the form validation is as follows (attached).  Thanks for your help.
