Huntington Beach, which topped all California cities its size in alcohol-related injury traffic collisions in 2009, fared slightly better the following year, according to statistics released in March by the Office of Traffic Safety.
The city ranked fifth out of 53 in its population category in 2010, the numbers showed.
A total of 136 people were killed or injured in alcohol-related collisions, down from 195 the year before.
DUI arrests were slightly down from the year before as well, with 1,274 compared to 1,558 in 2009.
Huntington has been in the top 10 for per-capita DUI accidents for more than half a decade, ranking sixth in 2005, eighth in 2006, seventh in 2007 and fourth in 2008. Numbers for 2011 are not yet available, Office of Traffic Safety spokesman Chris Cochran said.
