The beginning of the end for the ‘Drive Thru’?

The City Council of Minneaopolis, Minnesota, a city in the central-eastern American state has taken the decision to ban any future drive thru restaurants in the settlement. This is viewed as solution to the incidental occurrence of car accidents in proximity to these uses, as well as the contribution to air pollution by idling cars waiting in queues to be served and afterwards in car parks of fast food restaurants. Based on personal experience, putting a stop to such uses will also undoubtedly assist with the creation and maintenance of a cleaner and tidier area and road network in the vicinity of drive thru restaurants.
