Delivery driver dilemmas

The order was placed from an unsavory part of town in Newport, RI.   The eyes of the driver delivering the pizza were sweeping from side to side as he drove down the dark street, his knuckles gripping the wheel a bit tighter than usual.  The roof of his car was adorned with the pizza company’s roof topper.  He knew it made his car stand out.  He was very aware that several deliveries to this particular area resulted in armed robberies, the latest in which the driver was assaulted.  He quickly glanced at the house address, then in the mirror, and again side to side.  The house was just ahead.
