Maybe the bank has gunbuster signs up and the folks are carrying?

One problem with that concept. You're effectively in a box that restricts your movements. All it takes is one BG hiding and popping up to your door with a gun in your face at the right moment and yer screwed. At least out of the car you stand a fighting chance...just my thoughts.

Yes. This is exactly what concerns me when I use the drive up ATM machine at my local bank. The way it is situated, I can't see if someone is coming from the other side.

As I read somewhere (Andy Stanford of Options for Personal Security?) the keys to stay out of trouble are:"Avoidance, Deterrence, De-escalation".
I haven't been at an ATM for many, many years; if I were a BG in need of a few quick bucks, ATM ambush would be one of my first choices...
The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

Search YouTube for CrossFit - ATM STRATEGY with Tony Blauer. Can't post link - Mods would get me for a foul language post, but he makes good points.
Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
