The ubiquitous Tim Hortons drive-thru, a daily pit stop for many Canadians on their way to work, has brewed a controversy in Newfoundland and Labrador's capital city.
Full story: Tim's lineups spark crackdown on new drive-thrus
Trans-Canada Highway (!!) backed up by coffee conjestion exacerbated by an abortion intersection as designed by a traffic planning doofus and approved by a bunch of overpaid town councillor meatheads.
STOP THE INSANITY!

Ok some Timmys are not placed well for extended lineups. easy... force the company to put a traffic guide at end of property to tell them to go park. The line up is full!

Once you turn in the driveway, you are COMMITTED.
If you change you mind or God forbid-I have seen this: forget your coffee at the window or they screw it up...you have to re-live the nightmare! You HAVE to go THRU no matter what.
Forget about parking in their lots! They are TOO SMALL and with the drive-thru lineup in the line of parking...why would you try?!
PRAY that the person in front of you isn't ordering food too!! UGH!!
Timmy-Ho's makes it so you pretty much have to use the drive-thru.
I agree that the people who typically prefer them are the ones that pay big bucks for gym memberships and then wait for a half-hour in a parking lot to park near the damned door! WHAT is up with THAT?!

Other Tim's stores are similar, with cars backed up onto the street trying to get in. Tim's should pay for turn lanes when they adversely impact traffic flow.
Personally, I don't go to Tim's. I have better things to do than stand in line to spend my money. 7-11 coffee is just as good.

Lazy suburban drones and drive-thrus go hand in hand.

That should be addressed.
