Six hundred people were killed or injured in auto accidents in San Luis Obispo in 2013 according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. Their website reveals that 78 of those accidents involved alcohol and 23 victims were killed or injured due to drunk drivers under the legal age of 21 years old. Motorcycles accounted for 39 total accidents and 60 pedestrians were killed or injured by automobiles that year. Ninety-two bicyclists also experienced a collision with an auto in 2013. Most of the collisions were caused due to speeding drivers, although law enforcement reports that a significant number of collisions happened at night when the drivers could not clearly see the road.
