Adopted rule summary:
Pursuant to Local Law 5 of 2018, the maximum civil penalty amounts relating to street construction, maintenance, repairs, obstructions and closures were increased significantly, particularly where public safety is involved. Accordingly, DOT is increasing certain penalty
amounts for violations adjudicated at the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings. The increased penalties are expected to increase compliance with the Department’s rules and thereby promote public safety in the street construction and maintenance process.
Specifically, the rule:
increases the penalty amounts of 9 current violations;
adds 7 new penalties to reflect recently adopted rules and changes to the law; and
provides clearer, more concise language in describing the penalties.
