Shopping cart solution

Regarding displaced/stolen store shopping carts: There is a very simple solution to the problem.

A German chain store called ALDIS (with locations on the East Coast) uses a deposit system where one deposits a 25-cent coin into the unit holding the carts and a cart is automatically released for use.

When returned, the user simply snaps the cart back into place and their quarter is returned to them.

It is very simple to use and most efficient. I'm surprised it's not more widely used.
