I know there's probably some quasi-rational explanation as to why there are braille buttons on a drive thru bank machine, but that link is what I always imagine every time I see them.

Have you ever driven up to an ATM and let someone in the backseat use the ATM, cause they need cash before going out?

A more realistic reason is that all ATM's have braille and the banks don't want to pay for two different ATM models.

ADA laws around Braille are comical. In addition to the ATM (usually a post production attachment) here are two more.

Hotel room numbers- you expect someone to slide their hand along a wall until they find them?

Emergency exits- think about it.

Good hearted legislatures (or appointed department heads) causing unnecessary expense.

Actually they would use their cane to see where there is a door and feel for the number to see if it is their room.
