Research on mobile emissions from freeways and commuter traffic has appeared in countless scientific journals over the last decade. The implications of decreased air quality from this traffic and the corresponding adverse health effects have become glaringly apparent. However, idling traffic has not been thoroughly studied despite its suspected deleterious effects. There were record levels of drive-through usage due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021, and the increased usage of them has remained prevalent. The goal of this study is to determine the impacts from a single drive-through and illustrate the importance of studying them further. Drive-through counts were taken three days per week at four specified times to calculate an average daily traffic rate. Additionally, GPS monitored trips were taken through the drive-throughs in order to calculate level of service times. All of the traffic data will be compounded to use the EPA MOVES model and determine the simulated pollution. These values will then be compared to a local EPA monitored freeway in order to evaluate the significance of emissions from drive-throughs. This study is the inception of its kind to be further developed in future ones.
