All kinds of traffic

Some things I expected: the frog crossing sign was no surprise in a town of frog murals, scultptures, fountains, and queens. But some things I did not expect: for instance, the drive-through cigarettes-and-booze store took me by surprise. But drive-through venues--there's a drive-through grocery store, for instance--are nearly as ubiquitous as frog decorations. For someone like me, coming from a state founded by Puritans, the apex of this trend is the popularity of drive-through Daquiri bars. Note: Your straw is handed to you separately because no one would want to encourage drinking and driving.
