The Commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) is authorized to promulgate rules regarding parking and traffic operations in the City pursuant to Section 2903(a) of the New York City Charter.


The purpose of the adopted rule is to amend paragraph 4 of subdivision p of Section 4-12 of the Rules of the City of New York to conform the rule with legislative changes made to sections 10- 157 and 10-157.1 of the Administrative Code.



On October 25, 2012, Local Laws 52, 54, 55 and 56 of 2012 were enacted. These laws related to

commercial bicyclists and were passed to clarify and streamline requirements for businesses using bicycles for commercial purposes and their bicycle operators. Additionally, DOT was provided explicit enforcement authority for these sections of the Administrative Code.


As a result of these legislative changes, DOT is revising the requirements for the commercial bicyclist safety poster. These amendments align the poster to the new law and make the poster more user-friendly.
