Delivery Tip - Revisited

Awhile back, there was a thread about how much to tip for home delivery. There were a wide variety of opinions, but I came away thinking 10% - 15% would be fair.

Suppose a restaurant charges a fee for delivery (e.g., last night I was charged a $2 delivery fee)...does the driver get that? If so, can I deduct $2 from the 10% - 15% delivery tip?

Thanks for your advice.
