Probably it depends on how much the bounty per scooter is worth.

If you were out walking or biking, and you received a text alerting you that a scooter is illegally parked near you, how much money would make it worth your while to pick up the scooter and move it to an allowable parking spot?

Absolutely no less than $30/hour. $30 for the first hour or part of an hour it takes, and an additional $30 for each additional hour or part of an hour. So if it takes me 30 minutes to move one, I get paid $30. If it takes me 1 hour and 10 minutes to move one, I get paid $60.

I would also need to be appropriately signed on with the pick-up organisation and assured of the necessary insurance cover.

Does that seem reasonable to you?
