McDonald's wants to open one of its drive-through restaurants for 20 hours each day.
Have your say
Craig, I agree, they should do something. A day or so after the McDonalds opened in Penrith there was discarded packaging on the roadside, now all the rural roads and car parks out of town are littered with fast food wrappers. I'd make driver throughs write the registration number on all the items they sell, then if the driver litters the police know who to fine. It does show though how many scummy people live in this County, too lazy to dispose of their amazing health feast wrappers properly they throw them out of the window for some other person to clean up.
Every route you take out of the North of Carlisle is littered with discarded takeaway packaging with the bulk of it carrying the McDonalds livery. If it were up to me I would let them open 24 hours as long as they undertake to carry out DAILY patrols along these routes picking up the refuse that blights our beautiful county.
Some of the comments posted are unbelievable! I'm sure when McDonaldâs Carlisle applied for longer opening hours, they didnât realise what a tipping point it would be to solving all of the countries problems.It would appear that if Carlisle City council deny this application, Carlisle, over night, will become litter free, the rise in obesity will plateau and road usage will fall. As an added benefit, young boys in their first cars will stop speeding and start to buy free range produce from locally owned suppliers AND throw all of their rubbish in the bin. Thanks to the good people of Carlisle with their forethought and expertise, the rest of the country will learn from our example and, in turn, stop McDonalds being open such unsociable hours. From there the world will sit up and listen. Soon, Carlisle will be on the world stage as global obesity figures fall, our dependency on fossil fuel falls (remember road usage has dropped) and the world is free from litter. It happened here first!There is another way to look at it and it is as follows. In the grand scheme of things, does it really matter?
