DRIVE THRU ACCIDENT Ι PEDESTRIAN STRUCK BY CAR Ι PARKING LOT DESIGN CAN PREVENT INJURY TO PEDESTRIANS Ι FAST FOOD • COFFEE DRIVE THRU – POOR DESIGN

Many restaurants, coffee shops and other businesses that use drive-thru pick-up or take-outs often place pedestrians unnecessarily exposed to wayward automobiles. For example, an entire group of diners waiting on benches in front of the spaces reserved for take-out parking will be crushed when the inevitable happens. In recent years, we have all heard of a driver hitting the gas instead of the brake. As a result, the automobile goes crashing into parked cars, pedestrians and sometimes directly into the storefront causing significant property damage and serious personal injuries.

Many fast food restaurants and coffee shops have their entry and exit doors on the same side as the drive-thru or pick-up window. Drivers are sometimes distracted as they are checking their order and fail to see pedestrians crossing just a few feet away from them. This driver inattention sometimes causes the vehicle to run into pedestrians knocking them to the ground causing serious personal injuries.
