Drivetime Mahatma: On flashing to warn of speed traps

posted: 08/23/2014 3:26 a.m. Discuss

Dear Dudeness: Back in the 1950s and 1960s, even us kids knew the two rules of the road: All trash had to be thrown out the window, and the driver had to flash his headlights at oncoming traffic to warn about the policeman ahead. It's obvious the trash rule is still followed. Is the flashing still OK? -- Flashy Trasher

Drivetime Mahatma: On big rigs the noise is exhausting

posted: 08/16/2014 2:48 a.m. Discuss

Dude: After tiring of having 18-wheelers wake me up with their extremely loud exhaust, I looked up the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. It seems to me that the Arkansas Highway Police doesn't enforce the standards of Part 325.91 about exhaust systems and which covers mufflers and noise. Could you check with them and let the citizens of this great state know? -- Rattled Panes

Drivetime Mahatma: Who yields at crossing? Polite folks

posted: 08/09/2014 2:50 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: Our three generations of family disagree on who has the right of way in the following hypothetical scenario. Driver A heads north on First Street. He arrives at Universe Street, stopping at a stop sign. His intent is to turn left. Driver B heads south on First Street and arrives at a stop sign on Universe Street immediately after Driver A. Driver B's intent is to go straight across. Who has the right of way? Our older generation says the driver going straight. The younger generation says the driver who arrived first. The middle generation is split. We have a new 16-year-old driver, so this is important. -- Patriarch

Dear Mahatma: A comment about "Pothole City." I called the city's 311 number and reported two potholes in front of our home. They were filled the next day. Way to go, Public Works Department. -- Happy on Skyway

Drivetime Mahatma: Crews race to fill passel of potholes

posted: 07/12/2014 2:52 a.m. Discuss

Mahatma: We should rename Little Rock to "Pot Hole City." Chenal Parkway has potholes that haven't been fixed in two years. Our mayor doesn't need a pothole hotline -- he needs to fix them. I need to send the city a bill for front-end alignment. -- Pothole Dodger
