Drive-thru idling is elephant in the room

We should all congratulate PGAIR on their attempts to cleanse our airshed of exhaust fumes from idling vehicles. However, they have overlooked the elephant in the room.

We should all congratulate PGAIR on their attempts to cleanse our airshed of exhaust fumes from idling vehicles.

However, they have overlooked the elephant in the room.

At any given time, on any day, there are upwards of a hundred vehicles idling in line awaiting service from drive-through windows of local restaurants.

These windows would ideally be reserved for the physically handicapped who cannot easily access service indoors.

The rest of us should take the time and make the effort to exit the comfort of our personal transportation and take our refreshment indoors.

It would be better on the nerves and better for the environment, not to mention benefits of the exercise.
