That may be the official explanation, but are you more vulnerable receiving food thru the driveup or standing there being told you won't be served?

Did they tell you not to stand there for safety reasons, or just if you stood there, you wouldn't be treated as a welcome customer?

In a well-lighted driveway, with people walking across it to get to their cars and cars stopping to order anyway, what kind of danger is this? You're more likely to get hit crossing a street, and last I heard, that was legal.
