A total of 13,615 people who committed traffic violations while riding shared bikes in Shenzhen have banned from using the service from July 17 to 23 after a new regulation took effect from the beginning of the month. It is the first ban on bike sharing issued by Shenzhen authorities, the city’s traffic police said. 

Reports say traffic violations by non-motor vehicles have increased substantially since bike sharing started in the southern China city where most roads have no special lanes for bikes.

According to data released by Shenzhen traffic police, 52.65 per cent of the 13,615 non-motor vehicle violations were attributed to shared bike users, with Mobike constituting over half.

Traffic violations occurred more frequently during morning and evening rush hours among young people aged 20 to 30. There were more male violators than female.

In order to enforce the ban, police will work with relevant companies by randomly checking information on violators and comparing it with what comes from the companies. Meanwhile, citizens can report uncivil conduct to the police and related government agencies via phone and social networks.
