Bike registration systems were aimed at making it easier to recover stolen bikes, not about making it easier to ticket cyclists or raise revenue to fund roads. For example, students at Cambridge are required to register their bikes with their college and paint the license number on the rear mudguard or frame. This is to make it easier to recover stolen bikes (which is a huge problem) and figure out which bikes have been abandoned when students leave.

I guess those pushing for registration and accountability should love SoBi because, just like a rental car, all the bikes are identified clearly with registration numbers and the system tracks all users (like a rental car).

Maybe we should require all motorists to have GPS in their cars so police can easily and automatically issue speeding tickets?
