I’m a delivery driver who makes a lot of stops at small shops across the city. Most trips go off without a hitch, but, on some streets, I’m forced to block a bike lane while I run in for five minutes. How do I deal with the foul-mouthed, bell-happy cyclists who shout in my face and pound the side of my van?
