I delivered Chinese food for over 6 years, this was never a problem. I don't get it. And a delivery driver generally drives a little faster and more aggressively than your average driver as we literally have places to go and people to see as fast as possible just to do it again. You learn to rally race your car, taking a corner just on the edge of your tire grip but not necessarily going over the speed limit. Braking fast and accelerating hard, again within the legal limits but it really does add up.
You can usually get 4 orders on the floor and 4 or more on the seat. Put a piece of cardboard over the 4 on the floor, and you can layer another 4. Add a 2 litre pop bottle to the seat and cover with a piece of cardboard, and now everything is flat.
As a delivery driver I inspected every bag that went into my vehicle, even the ones I packed myself. Those lids stay on just fine if put on properly. Pay for your order, take it outside, open it up, and secure all the lids. Then you don't have to worry about it.
