What do you think of the city's proposal to ban new drive-thru restaurants?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by James Tensuan

"It's kind of hard to use the far-right lane to get onto the freeway because of the fact there are already so many drive-throughs."

Dani Villalobos, Mountain View

"It would be so much easier if they were on neighborhood streets."

Elissa Morales, Mountain View

"I don't use drive-throughs very often but I do understand the convenience, so I'm not sure why you would want to ban them."

Kaelin Colclasure, Los Altos

"I don't think it really makes sense to ban drive-throughs on El Camino. The road is already so heavily trafficked, the difference in emissions would not be all that great."

Walter Mundt, Mountain View

"I think drive-throughs should be for electric cars only."

Gregory Frank, Mountain View
