i'm also drawn by the principle of social credit. But this could be abused by the gov, and maybe others.

They also have a bounty on reporting traffic mishaps to the police, getting a commission from the fine applied to the bad driver. But, this has also been abused by people harassing other drivers in traffic, forcing them to break the law to avoid impact and then go with the recording of the out of context incident to the police and cash in on it.

This reminds me of the cobra effect
" The British government was concerned about the number of venomous cobra snakes in Delhi.[3] The government therefore offered bounty for every dead cobra. Initially this was a successful strategy as large numbers of snakes were killed for the reward. Eventually, however, enterprising people began to breed cobras for the income. When the government became aware of this, the reward program was scrapped, causing the cobra breeders to set the now-worthless snakes free. As a result, the wild cobra population further increased. The apparent solution for the problem made the situation even worse."
