Public Drinking makes women feel unsafe

Talking to women I asked them for one easy step that would make them feel safer and quite a few mentioned eliminating public drinking. Probing further public drinking is a sign that the beat constable is corrupt and not doing his/her job. It is just not that the drinkers pass lewd comments but the presence of public drinking is like a broken window. Street vendors who sell snacks bribe the constables to let public drinking continue. Maybe this is a Delhi specific comment . Would no public drinking help ?
