(WTNH) – At fast-food drive-thru, there is some proper etiquette to follow to make a smoother experience for all the cars in line.

Certified Etiquette Expert Karen Thomas says it starts with remembering that a drive-thru is for small orders.

Drive-Thru Etiquette

  • A drive-thru is made for small orders with expediency in mind.
  • Don’t Tailgate Car in Front of You – leave space
  • Know your Order before arriving at the speaker, speak clearly
  • Arrange payment method before arriving at window
  • No add ons please once at the payment window!
  • If a mistake is made, park and go inside to rectify – not at the window
