On TV, whenever a cop is sitting in a car drinking hot coffee and has to take off in a hurry, they throw the coffee out the window. Is that official procedure? It makes sense to save seconds and avoid injury to the driver, but I just wonder if it's one of those fiction standards that's become entrenched rather than something real that's been adopted.
