Which? Faster food or safer sidewalks in Hoboken, NJ?

Besides grown men wearing superhero costumes – another two-wheeled trend is on the rise in Hoboken: Electric bikes for food delivery.

There are now a few local restaurants that are using electric bikes to get food to their customers faster.

Hoboken411 has received a few emails from concerned citizens wondering about the safety of these deliveries. I’ve personally seen these guys zip by at incredible speeds on the sidewalk.

Sure, they might be skilled or even courteous riders, but I haven’t even witnessed them ringing a bell, and they do sometimes reach break-neck speeds!

What would you rather have… your chicken dumplings 5 minutes sooner? Or these guys off the sidewalks?
