Car-free Walk-ups considered in Salt Lake City

Fast food restaurants in Salt Lake City may soon be required to serve walk-up customers at their drive-through windows, if the city council votes on a new law to go into effect.

SALT LAKE CITY — Have you ever tried to get a burger or a milk shake from a local fast food restaurant while riding your bike home from work or school? Perhaps your Ford F-150 didn't fit in the drive-thru of the local McDonald's, but you didn't have time to take the children out of the truck and go inside for dinner.

These fast food restaurants haven't been required by law to serve walk-up customers at their drive-through windows. Until now, potentially.

A new law proposed to the Salt Lake City Council would require equal access to walking or biking customers at drive-through windows. The City Council will discuss the potential law, and all such options, at a meeting on April 22 at 7 p.m. in the City & County Building, 451 S. State Street.

Feedback can also be sent on the Open City Hall online forum, or by calling 801-535-7600.
