Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Paragraph 1 of subdivision b of section 19-507 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as amended by local law number 35 for the year 2011, is amended to read as follows:

b. 1. (a) Any driver who has been found to have violated a provision of paragraph [one, two or three] 1, 2, or 3 of subdivision a of this section, or any combination thereof, shall be fined not less than [two hundred dollars] $200 nor more than [five hundred dollars] $500 for the first offense. Any driver who has been found in violation of any of the provisions of such paragraphs, or any combination thereof, for a second time within a [twenty-four] 24 month period shall be fined not less than [three hundred fifty dollars] $350 nor more than [one thousand dollars] $1,000, and the commission may suspend the driver's license of such driver for a period not to exceed [thirty]  30 days. Any driver who has been found to have violated any of the provisions of [paragraph one, two or three of such subdivision] such paragraphs, or any combination thereof, three or more times within a [thirty-six] 36 month period shall be fined not more than [one thousand dollars] $1,000 for each such third or subsequent offense, and the commission shall revoke the driver's license of such driver.

(b)(1) Any driver who has been found to have violated any of the provisions of paragraph [four] 4 of subdivision a of this section shall be fined not less than [two hundred dollars] $200 nor more than [three hundred fifty dollars] $350 for the first offense. Any driver who has been found in violation of any of the provisions of such paragraph for a second time within a [twenty-four] 24 month period shall be fined not less than [three hundred fifty dollars] $350 nor more than [five hundred dollars] $500, and the commission may suspend the driver's license of such driver for a period not to exceed [thirty] 30 days. The commission shall revoke the driver's license of any driver who has been found to have violated any of the provisions of paragraph [four] 4 of such subdivision three or more times within a [thirty-six] 36 month period.

(2) Notwithstanding clause 1 of this subparagraph, any driver who has been found to have violated any of the provisions of paragraph 4 of subdivision a of this section shall be fined $2,000 for the first offense, $4,000 for a second offense within a 24 month period, and $10,000 for a third or subsequent offense within a 120 month period, with these enhanced fines not affecting any otherwise applicable license revocation or penalty, if the violation occurred in any of the following areas: (i) airports in the city of New York; (ii) that area of Manhattan that is south of east 96th street and south of west 110th street in which a HAIL vehicle is prohibited from picking up passengers by street hail; and (iii) in such other areas as the commission shall identify by rule.
