It depends on how long the road trip is.

Seriously? Do you mean robbing the restaurant, or people waiting in line? If the restaurant, how do you manage that? The cashier just slides the bullet-resistant glass window closed. If the waiting people, how's waiting in a drivethrough different than a traffic light?

From the article that I shared in the first post:
Quote:
In January, Toledo, Ohio, resident Melodi Dushane punched out a McDonald's drive-through window when she was told they didn't sell Chicken McNuggets in the morning. [...] A Wendy's customer reportedly assaulted a female clerk at a drive-through window in 2007 after she didn't tell him to "have a nice day." The list goes on.
This article only covers violence to customers in drive-throughs: Drive-Through Danger : Crime: Robberies and attacks increase on customers using drive-up windows at fast-food restaurants. Some chains increase security. - latimes

I mean robbing the people waiting in line. Not sure if the drive-thrus here in Brazil actually use bulletproof glass. Compared to traffic lights, many people here tend to drive with their windows closed, which leads some robbers (that sometimes don't even use actual guns) to look out for an easier target.
