Study says drive-thrus are cleaner than park and walk

Every motorist knows that drive-thru windows are convenient, but did you know they also are responsible for all kinds of social and civic good? Drive-thrus are valuable to the elderly, the immobile, parents with small children and, believe it or not, are actually better for the environment than cars in parking lots or so says TDL, the parent company of Tim Hortons.
The study results are here. Coincidentally, this study was commissioned by Tim Hortons, the company with the most drive-thrus in Canada. I call BS on this study. Cars do not cool down so fast but very few days a year...

FYI, this company is also advertising bringing your own mug to get it filled, and how green that is. Yet, they often fill their standard paper cup, which they empty in your own mug before throwing the paper cup in the trash...
