    I support the proposed rules change and increase in penalties for violations. I am a daily bike commuter and must often navigate through construction sites that spill into the bike lane without providing proper and safe accommodations for cyclists. As a pedestrian I also come across many construction sites that impede the sidewalk without relevant signage and block curb cuts at intersections that many people depend on to mount and dismount the sidewalk. These wouldn’t be such frequent occurrences if the fines were proportional to the amount of harm caused to public safety. The status quo is harmful to low-income and immigrant workers who depend on safe streets and unobstructed sidewalks to travel to work or even do their jobs in the case of delivery cyclists. Please stand up for New Yorkers’ safety and dignity. Thank you.
