Here is a danger and liability concern I had never considered. Yesterday morning, a three-year-old boy died in Rochester, New York after falling through a restaurant grease trap. The trap was covered by a plastic lid (like a manhole cover) that was green to blend in with the surrounding grass. The police said it appears the boy ran over the lid, popped it loose, and then fell. A similar incident happened at an Alabama ice cream shop in October 2017. CNN has the story.
