How does the Prius handle HVAC with the engine off? I understand auto-stop has been around for decades, but even though it was proven to help save the world, nobody wanted their air conditioning shutting off.

At what point would someone in a drive-through turn off their engine? Aren't there generally multiple cars in front of you and you would need to turn on your engine to move forward one spot? I have often wondered about tracks like they have at robot car washes that move your car through, but I do not think that expensive technology that requires a carbon-based life form is necessarily better than some asphalt and concrete.

Other reasons drive-throughs are more prone to violence is that they are open earlier and later than the lobby, criminals are already in their getaway car, and they are often located near freeways and highways.

Eating and riding a bike?
