My main concern at drive-thrus are robberies. OTOH they don't make so much sense to me, even though they're also common in many Brazilian cities. Well, since most of the local fleet is fitted with manual transmissions, and it's not that easy to use a single hand for steering and shifting while the other is handling the food, it only makes sense if the food is either for the passengers or taken out to get eaten at the destination.

BTW when I was at high-school I have taken food at drive-thrus on a bicycle a couple of times, while going back home from a club where I used to attend to rowing classes. Tried to eat while pedalling at least once but didn't feel so comfortable, since I couldn't use the rear brake or shift speeds in that bicycle while holding the handlebar with the left hand and eating with the right.
