No, it's because delivery people ignore all lanes and imagine themselves as a liquid molecule seeking the quickest route available rather than as a vehicle sharing roads and pathways with other commuters.

And the people in this area hate bikes in general (while relying heavily on their services).

It looks to me like New York should be more concerned about their car problem
