posted: 11/28/2015 3:17 a.m. Comment 1

Dear Mahatma: Do the police have the right if they stop you to make you get out of the car? It's my understanding that you must have your driver's license, proof of insurance and title info, but what else can they make you do? -- Robert

updated: 11/21/2015 3:03 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: Driving through the Big Rock exchange the other night, it was very dark. None of the big, new light poles was lit. Please don't tell me the copper wires have already been stolen. To whom do we complain, city or state? -- Jerry

posted: 11/14/2015 3:24 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: Please check on the Arkansas 13 expansion, also known as the Searcy bypass. Work started at least 3½ years ago, yet is nowhere near completion. Stoplights were installed more than a year ago and the intersection is nowhere near complete. The whole project appears to be a fiasco. -- Frustrated in Searcy

Dear Sultan of the Asphalt: I diligently read the traffic accidents in the newspaper. It seems there are more accidents caused by a vehicle crossing the centerline. Any way to confirm this?

Drivetime Mahatma: Rush-hour trolley run irks reader

posted: 10/17/2015 3:02 a.m. Discuss

O Great and Wise Person: Can you suggest to the powers that be to suspend the trolley during rush hour? Once again, I was stuck in traffic trying to get across the Main Street Bridge while the trolley, with no one on board, poked through the intersection at Markham and Scott streets, backing up traffic at a critical time. Seems a waste. Oh, wait, that could be considered a political statement. -- Sorry

Drivetime Mahatma: Spots with stripes are for ramps

posted: 10/10/2015 3:09 a.m. Comment 1

Dear Mahatma: I am a quadriplegic. My wife drives our handicapped ramp van. The striped area next to handicapped parking spots are a must for us to lower the ramp. Motorcycles are often parked in these striped areas in our daughter's apartment complex in Fayetteville. Can I call the police or complain to management? I'm concerned about repercussions. -- Mr. Russ
