The owner of Honey Dew Donuts has petitioned the city government for a drive-through for its location on Squire Road.
Our observation of this request is that it doesn’t vary at all from what presently exists on at least a half dozen locations of that busy commercial strip.
There is a Dunkin Donuts with a drive through on Squire Road. There is the East Boston Savings Bank on Squire Road with a drive through. There are three gasoline stations with automobiles driving in and out at all hours of the day and night and there is a bakery and a food mart operation all with major curb cuts and traffic moving in and out.
On merit, there is nothing wrong with the Honey Dew Donut request for a drive through.
What would be wrong is to deny it.
