Pittsfield Dunkin' to solve traffic snarl

Oct 11, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Berkshire Eagle

While the owners of the First Street Dunkin' Donuts say they doubt their drive-up customers are snarling the heavily traveled city road, they plan to take steps designed to improve the traffic flow in front of their eatery.

Not a lot of space to work with, I can't wait to see what they can possibly do besides move to another location or increase their speed of service.

You could drive up to the drive thru window at the Dunkin Donuts on East Street. Then drive up to the one on First Street and you order will be ready. No lines.

They are only going to sell to compact cars at this location. No Pickup Trucks or SUVs will be allowed.

Cops will have to park and walk in for their Donuts so they can sit and tell Lies.

They could hire the Hell's Angels to stand at the entrance with baseball bats and anyone who blocks first street gets their heads bashed in.

was anyone else as annoyed by the fact that they threw in there that are looking at adding more locations. Really? Seriously? How many effing dunkin donuts do we need in this one area?? How about bringing something in that will add jobs that pay more than $8.00 an hour.

I say that Dunkin Donuts issue everyone who wants one a giant rubber Bumper that goes all the way around your car. That way we can play bumper cars on first street while we get our coffee. Just like at the amusement park.

Is that $8.00 plus all the coffee you can drink? Because that would make a difference ya know.

The mayor does not need to go to Dunkin Donuts...Tricia comes in early and makes a full pot for him, taste tests it and then adds his cream for him....no sugar for this sour puss

What if we try to put a Dunkin Donuts on every street corner throughout the City? Change the name of Pittsfield to Dunkin Donuts, MA. With our new gay Mayor Machetti.

Not to get off topic too far but have you ever noticed that the people they hire are dumber than a box of rocks?

They ask for your order, you tell them and then they ask you to repeat it. Like they space out when you give it them. Even after repeating your order twice, they still get it wrong.

I think even $8.00 is too much money to pay them. Even with free coffee.

Okay how about we make First Street one way to Fenn Street. Left lane for thru traffic - right lane for Dunkin Donuts drive thru?

How about it's just coffee people? How about obeying the rules of the road and how about the police enforcing the rules? Why are these people molly coddled? It seems that they get VERY special treatment and have for years.

Move the goddamn business!!!

How about we stop trashing the business, post the signs, then have the police enforce them. The operators of the vehicles need to operate them within the law. This prob does not only belong to dunkin.

Well that problem may fix itself. Perhaps they will be closing it and Dunkin piss water can open up a satellite business there.
