The most important factor is the police. Conduct random checks, especially on weekends, to nab drunken drivers.

Bar owners are responsible to the extent of ensuring that their customers do not create a ruckus.

This is like asking cigarette sellers to limit the number of packets they sell or asking drink sellers to limit the number of soft drinks sold. Profit overrides everything.
