I think the idea with commercial dockless bikes is they would have some kind of automatic wheel lock you could unlock with an app, and your use would be logged and billed. Hopefully if you parked it and someone else then threw it in the river you wouldn't be blamed.
That's EXACTLY what the problem with dockless is- people are not blamed (charged) when bikes end up in random places, because the bike is not locked to a fixed object. That's what the problem is.
I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.
