Rate answer

1950s American automobile culture had an enduring influence on the culture of the United States, as reflected in:

(1) Suburbanization since the increasing availability of cars to get higher speeds, along with the United States' investment in infrastructure such as highways and bridges, made possible people to live beyond the confines of major cities, and instead commute to and from work.

(2) Drive-in restaurant as more Americans began driving cars, entirely new categories of businesses came into being to allow them to enjoy their products and services without having to leave their cars, such as the drive-in restaurant, and later the drive-through window.

(3) Drive-in movies  in the drive-in theaters, which are a form of cinema structure consisting of a large outdoor movie screen, a projection booth, a concession stand and a large parking area for automobiles. In such drive-in theater people view the movie from the comfort of their cars and listen via an electric speaker placed at each parking spot.
