Having it Both Ways

For anyone that lives in New York City, this is the perfect explanation for having it both ways:

The delivery guys have been given the right at any time to regard themselves as either cyclists or a pedestrians. When the traffic light is green, they regard themselves as vehicles and ride.

Life is short and they need the money.
