After confirming that the electric bikes were unlicensed, the law enforcement officers immediately cleared up and towed away the vehicles. In addition, the law enforcement officers stopped a citizen riding an electric bicycle and temporarily detained the vehicle.

Reporters learned that the shared electric bikes launched in Nanjing are mainly "No. 7 electric bicycle", "XIANGQI" and "BAOJIA", with a total quantity of about 30,000, and only 433 vehicles being licensed. Deng Jing introduced that due to not encouraging the development of the shared electric bicycle, the unlicensed electric bicycles will be repelled from the market in accordance with the relevant regulations and the licensed ones will be exited from the market orderly according to the principle of "natural elimination, gradual scrapping".
