Here is just the BASIC list of vehicle-into-restaurant crashes at Wendy's in 2015. These do not include parking lot accidents, simple building scrapes, or drive thru lane mishaps; these are crashes where the vehicle broke the envelope of the building and caused damages and/or injuries. In at least one case, a customer was killed.

One common element is these eight different sites is that the storefronts are unprotected, and a review of all eight of the sites listed above shows that most have nose-in parking and a lack of safety barriers installed. Seeing the number of crashes and injuries so far this year, you would think that Wendy's would understand the need to take corrective action in the design of parking lots, the layout of new stores, and require the addition of simple barriers in vulnerable areas. You would think that -- but unfortunately you would be wrong. Here are some photos of NEWLY REMODELED OR NEWLY BUILT RESTAURANTS which as you can see continue the vulnerabilities that death and injury and repetition have already exposed.
