Drivetime Mahatma: Misplaced placard nets ticket

posted: 01/24/2015 3:31 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: I got a ticket for unauthorized parking in a handicapped spot. Our sedan, which I was driving, doesn't have a plate, but I carry the rear-view mirror placard. I forgot to display the placard when my wife and I went to lunch. Is the offense a failure to display, or parking in the spot without a permit? If the former, I will plead guilty to my second ticket in 55 years of driving. -- Somewhat Aggravated

Drivetime Mahatma: All bumps not created equal in LR

posted: 12/27/2014 3:17 a.m. Discuss

Dear Sultan of the Asphalt: A neighbor passed around a petition a few years ago to put speed bumps on Sanford Drive. They were put in. Very shallow. Drivers cross them once and quit slowing down. I see other speed bumps around town that create the opposite effect. Go over too fast, and replace your vehicle. If the street folks start parsing the difference between humps and bumps, please deliver some thumps on my behalf. -- Devoted Follower

Dear Mahatma: Driving to Lonoke on Interstate 40 recently, I came upon a car being driven somewhat erratically. Passing, I looked over at the driver and saw him scratching off lottery tickets in the center of his steering wheel at 70 mph. I have witnessed distracted drivers before, but this guy wins the prize. -- Little Rock Mike

Dear Mahatma: Does the city regulate the brightness of electronic signs? There's one on Chenal Parkway that is insanely bright -- blindingly bright -- whenever I drive past it at night. Seems dangerous to me. -- He Who Plies the Parkway
