McDonald's Fines Customers Who Take Too Long to Eat

Eat up, shop fast and move along.
That's the message some stores and fast-food establishments, including McDonald's, is giving its customers in England.
At 40 McDonald's there, drive-thru customers are given 45 minutes to finish their meal and leave the parking lot before a $225 ticket is issued, The Guardian reported.
The restrictions were put in place because people were abusing parking privileges at the establishments, a spokeswoman for McDonald's told The Guardian.
