Drive-Thru traffic at Tim Horton's is so bad that Saskatoon, Saskatchewan is considering a ban on future drive-thrus.

We don't have a Tim Horton's around here, but I saw them all over when we were in Ohio last month. Is it like a Dunkin Donuts?

I think a ban on drive-thrus is silly. If I want a coffee, we visit the drive thru at Starbucks or DD. Some mornings, it just wouldn't work for me to drag Lucy inside (she is NOT a morning person). I love the drive thru.

I just read the article. It sounds like these two locations just have a bad design (or maybe it's even the way traffic flows). The DD by us is the same way. The drive-thru will block cars from leaving parking spaces and, often times, flow out into the street. It's a mix of bad parking lot design, drive thru design, and street design (the town refuses to grow along with the population).

Jen, I didn't even know that they had Tim's in the US.
