Just a quick thought before anyone gets hurt: Can we please install some sort of median to prevent any of the "can't live without my coffee but won't get out of my car" Starbucks patrons that just have to turn into the drive-thru line from southbound Ham Lane?
The main problem is that the left-hand lane in which the coffee fiends sit and block for minutes at a time is the only lane that continues south at the Elm Street intersection. This leads others who are not stuck on that Seattle product to attempt to circumvent the stopped vehicles in the left lane — and in some cases cause traffic problems.
It is only a matter of time before someone is badly injured. Please correct this problem before it gets any more out of hand.
Thank you for your time.
