Penalize the party responsible for the bad behavior

I checked in the Internet for the penalty that the shared bike operator has to pay to the government for indiscriminate parking.

I was shocked to read that the penalty is $500 for each bike that is not removed within the time frame.

Why so much?

No wonder three operators have decided to cease operations.

Why allow these operators to start and then kill the business with such draconian measures?

I like to suggest a different approach. Each customer should place a deposit of $50 with the governmen to get a licence to use the shared bike. This deposit is forfeited if they park the shared bike indiscriminately. The customer will then be banned from using the shared bike - as he does not have a license.

We should penalize the party that is responsible for the bad behavior, i.e. the customer.
