I doubt anybody will change their behaviour by increasing fines for dooring cyclists.
As far as changing infrastructure, I will have put my bicycle away and be using a scooter long before cycling infrastructure will protect me.
A better solution is to educate drivers to do the “Dutch reach,” which is a practise where you use your right hand to open the car door.
This means a driver has to automatically swivel their body and position in order to look past their side-view mirror and to the back of the vehicle to where a cyclist might be approaching.
Make this a part of driver education and a public relation campaign and we will all be riding happier.
