Food Delivery on Bikes: NYC

I was contacted today by the NY Post about food deliverers + Superbowl Sunday + Police enforcement of traffic laws. Anybody deliver food in NY or have friends who do?

Wondering if this has anything to do with this thread:

Please get at me with a pm if you can help, Thanks.

I deliver witty one-liners.

Well, I think they're witty, anyway.
