    Is the future No More Hot Beverages to be served at Drive-Thru windows?

    I saw this comentary on an article about insurance companies handling claims for restaruants that many will no longer insure restauarnats that serve hot beverages at drive-thru windows. I guess there have been many more incidents of hot coffee to the lap? I wonder if McDonads is going to adopt this rule for their franchises?

    Now admittedly I get the $1 coffee often at McDonalds and several times the lids were loose/not snapped on leadng to close calls of spillage due to unaffixed lids. But anyone of good sense checks this right away. I see some stores using a lid press device to ensure the lid is on, while others just seem to do it by hand and may not get it sealed right. I wonder if sales of Hot Beverages cease at drive-ups (at any Chain, not just McDonalds) how that would effect overall sales?
