1. Increase taxes on booze tenfold - make it so expensive to get drunk, that you can only afford do so once every few months, instead of weekly, and in many cases daily.
2. Eliminate all GANGS from existence - crush their means of transport, ban them from consorting, make illegal wearing of gang regalia. Just keep locking the buggers up and increasing the sentences...better still send them on a shuttle to the mines being planned on Mars!
