Drive-thrus have made it easier for us to get our fast food on the go. It's just a simple three-step process and you don't have to get out of your car to do it. However, things are looking bleak for drive-thrus in the city of Minneapolis as it has recently banned the building of drive-thru windows as an initiative to reduce emissions, noise, and pedestrian accidents.
They specifically state vehicle emissions will be reduced, but no doubt human flatulence inside cars will also fall given this new ruling. Either way, this could be the first roll of the snowball that could see drive-thrus being a thing of the past.
Following a city council vote, members have voted to update zoning laws that will ban the construction of any new drive-thru windows in America’s 46th largest city. The Minneapolis City Council declared the zoning change will help achieve the city’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80 per cent come 2050.
