The local Starbucks is a nightmare. |
They opened a Raising Cane's that was also a traffic problem for 6 months. You'd think people had never had chicken fingers before.
Exceptions would be any restaurant within a quarter mile of an on/off ramp.
No reason for the McDonald's at Damen & Chicago or Logan & Milwaukee to have a drive thru.
Related, it should be illegal for drive thru lines to spill out onto public roads.

- the El is good. Just need light rail or real dedicated bus lanes to connect as a circle line.* - longsnapper June 7, 2022, 9:41:57
- Just have buses stop less often and always stop after a light/stop sign - bigbop85 June 7, 2022, 9:44:17
