I don't know about "civilized nations," I am from the USA and the least civilized place I've ever been is my home town, New Orleans. You can't carry a beer bottle in New Orleans because the drunks drop the beer bottles, they break, and everybody cuts their feet. It makes a mess.
Back when I was a student at LSU, the frat boys carried around beer bottles after the football games and smashed them everywhere. Fun for frat boys, not fun for townies.
Probably the same every place you have frat boys.
People who come to the US from Latin America get culture shock. They think they can stand around with beer bottles with their compadres on Friday night, just like back home.
Here in Fairfax, they get arrested. The local defense bar calls it "Hispanic in public." $50 fine. Next!

If you ever been anywhere else in the world, you'd know that people are allowed more freedom without harassment from the Police Department looking to fine people for every infraction... you know why??? Because they don't have money in other nations, so the cops don't bother on the small stuff.
