The City of Minneapolis, Minnesota, is considering a city-wide ban on drive-thru windows.
The ban was proposed during the planning commission’s meeting on Thursday. Already existing drive-thru windows would be grandfathered in, but no new windows would be permitted. Planning commission president Sam Rockwell says the move would reduce carbon emissions made by idling cars, and increase pedestrian safety.
The ban would have a small impact initially due tot the grandfathering clause, but the effects of it would likely be seen in the next few decades.
