Korea, Korean
Skyscrapers dwarf shanty towns, throngs of delivery men on motorcycles jockey with black Mercedes Benzes on the roads.

This is from an article in TIME. This is about Seoul, Korea.

What does "jockey with" mean?

    Yes, and there is (at least for me) the same idea of competing for space as in a horse race: the delivery men and the cars are all trying to find gaps in the traffic so they can keep moving forward.

    We often talk about "jockeying for position".
