'Safe Nightlife Association' cracks down on rowdy customers

San Luis Obispo bar and restaurant owners are aiming to crack down on "rowdy" customers.

The "Safe Nightlife Association" formed this summer after too many incidents of belligerent drunk patrons.

The group is made up of owners and operators of Downtown businesses that serve alcohol. Their mission is to cut down on the problems that occur at the bar scene after dark.

The new group is launching an aggressive campaign just in time for Halloween.

Downtown, San Luis Obispo is the hot spot after dark, it attracts large crowds, and it can get rowdy, even problematic.

"There's public urination, vandalism and fighting, things like that" said Deborah Cash, of the Downtown Association.

So the "Safe Nightlife Association" was formed. Bar and restaurant owners are teaming up with San Luis Obispo Police to teach partiers a lesson.

"There are a bunch of wild people in the Downtown area, so I totally understand where they're coming from," said Pat Collins of San Luis Obispo.

The new group is launching a campaign called "One 86, All 86." A program that if you're kicked out of one bar you could be banned from them all for the rest of the night.

"It's definitely going to make me think twice," said Collins.
