McDonalds worker explains why cameras take photos of customers in drive-thru

A McDonald’s worker has revealed the reason why cameras are installed at the drive-thru – and customers were gobsmacked.

Katie, 17, who posts on TikTok, @katieeclarkee, noted that the fast food chain has CCTV installed all around the drive up section of the restaurant.

But they’re not just there for security reasons, noted the Mirror.

Katie’s clip shows that the cameras take a snap of you in your car when you order.

That way the staff can keep track of multiple orders more easily.

Plenty of people didn’t realise that the McDonald’s workers would be able to see into their car when going through the drive-thru.

But, it ensures you get the right munch at the right price.

Katie’s video was viewed a whopping 6.3million times.

In the clip, she said: “Ever wondered how McDonald's know whose car is whose?"

"There is a camera and it takes a picture of you and your car.”

The teenager noted that orders are handed to the correct customer thanks to the useful camera.

When you drive up and order your meal, the cameras will take a snap of the car and link the image to the order.

Then, when the food is ready the worker simply has to check that it’s the correct car.

Katie added: So maybe don’t pick your nose when you order … because we see it and we judge you."

In the comments people were blown away by the information.

One person wrote: “Wow really? I had no idea there were cameras."

“Ayo that's some new new,” added a former staff member. “We didn't have that when I worked there last year."

And, a third exclaimed: "Wait y'all see us?"

Other McDonald’s workers also noted that they can hear everything you say in the car from the moment you drive up and activate the sensor.

The sensor turns on the staff member’s headset and gives them immediate access to hearing what you’re saying.

So, be polite…

One such worker said: “I'm waiting for the day they realise we hear them the moment they pull up, to the moment they leave the speaker box.”
