DRIVE-THROUGHS

     Americans love cars, so it makes sense that they love drive-throughs.  A drive-through is any place that offers a service or sells a product to customers who remain in their cars.  All over the U.S., you'll find drive-through banks, drive-through pharmacies, drive-through car washes, and drive-through grocery stores. And in some parts of the country, you'll even find drive-through liquor shops. But the drive-through restaurant is the most common kind of drive-through. It has been around since 1947, when the first drive-through was opened at Red's Giant Hamburg in Springfield, Missouri.   
 
     As popular as drive-throughs are, some cities, including Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Long Beach, California, have banned the construction of new drive-through restaurants. Proponents of the ban believe that having fewer drive-throughs will help curb emissions from idling cars, reduce the amount of litter, improve safety for pedestrians, and make cities more walkable.  Others say having fewer fast-food drive-throughs will help in the fight against obesity, though there is not enough evidence to support this argument yet.
 
     While the existing drive-through restaurants will be grandfathered in, which means they will not be affected by the new law, restaurant owners are not happy about these bans.  They feel the law limits their ability to serve their customers.  Many customers agree and dislike the bans. They say drive-throughs make their lives easier.
