Better Health Through Parking

I cannot believe how many people choose to use drive-through windows at fast food joints, coffee shops, liquor stores, and perhaps even barbers or hairdressers. I can understand this if the weather is truly horrible, the vehicle occupants have some sort of physical handicap, or the store in question is in a bad neighbourhood, but otherwise it is motor-assisted laziness.

Think of three of the many major issues facing our part of the planet these days. Obesity is at an all time high, fuel may be becoming scarce, and pollution continues to mess up the air we breathe.

Park and walk. Preferably, park far away. How often is it that one action can make a dent, no matter how small, in three major problems?
