This is the drive-through at the fast food Burger King near the South Dade Miami metro rail transit system. In case you do not know what a drive-through or drive-thru is, it is a type of service provided by a business that allows customers to purchase products without leaving their cars. This way of selling a product was first pioneered in the United States in the 1930s but has since spread to other countries. We Americans love our cars so much we can't leave them even for a minute... then again, we also are so pressed in life that we don't have time to stop and sit down for food. You've got it, some of us eat while we drive.

A recent study by the American National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows a staggering 80% of all car accidents and 65% of near misses are caused by distracted drivers more focused on their burgers than the road. The standard advice is then "Wait till you get home to eat that drive-thru."
