McDonald’s Cars Only Drive-Thru Policy Leads To Lawsuit

When it’s late at night and the hunger pains set in, the drive-thru at McDonald’s can quickly become the top option. But what do you do when you don’t drive? According to AOL, this Louisiana man is not loving the policy and is taking the golden arches to court.

Scott Magee is legally blind and unable to operate a vehicle. He’d still like to be able to satisfy his McDonald’s cravings via the drive thru, and has made numerous fruitless attempts at being served in this manner by walking through the drive-thru service area, only to be turned away in frustration.

Magee’s not going to stand for it anymore, and the matter has made its way to the US District Court in Chicago. He feels that McDonald’s policy of requiring drive-thru customers to be in a motor vehicle amounts to a form of discrimination, and violates the Americans with Disabilities Act.

We’ll see how far Magee gets with his lawsuit, but his lawyer has presented some interesting options that the company could implement for sight-impaired customers, including the installation of phones outside the restaurant. Blind customers could use the phone to place orders inside the restaurant, which would be delivered to them outside by restaurant staff.
