Drivetime Mahatma: Bike ahead in Conway: Pass at all?

posted: 02/06/2016 3:34 a.m. Discuss

Sir: In Conway there are many streets that are two lanes, no shoulders, and striped as no passing. That is, double yellow. Some of these streets are posted as "bicycle friendly." To be clear, if I come up behind a bicycle on one of these streets, moving at about 5 mph, it would be unlawful for me to move over to pass? By the way, is the 3-foot rule a law or a suggestion? -- Frustrated in Conway

Drivetime Mahatma: Suspension fines piled? Law a balm

posted: 01/30/2016 2:15 a.m. Discuss

An opportunity to help drivers with multiple fines for driving on a suspended license is now in progress. District Judge Vic Fleming, who presides over Little Rock's traffic court, has asked that the word be spread. We'll do our best to make it make sense.

Drivetime Mahatma: Taillights too, in rain, say readers

posted: 01/23/2016 2:33 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: You were not quite on target about headlights on in the rain, snow and sleet. While newer cars have running headlights, they don't have running taillights. It's as important to be seen from the rear as it is from the front during inclement weather. That requires turning on the lights. -- Barbara

DRIVETIME MAHATMA: Wipers on? Headlights, too, is law

Dear Mahatma: How can we get people to turn on their lights in the rain? Flashing signs should be set up to remind drivers that when it's raining and their wipers are on, their headlights have to be on, too. -- Sharon

Drivetime Mahatma: Kvetching on perilous crossroads

A couple of weeks ago, intersections were discussed here. Readers were invited to pass along their least favorite. Some did, bless their hearts.

Drivetime Mahatma: It's vexing, that texting on freeway

posted: 01/02/2016 2:19 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: I drive from Conway to Little Rock every day. I am amazed and frightened at the number of people who text and drive. Usually they're in the far left lane, driving much slower than surrounding traffic. What should I do? -- Conway Twitter

Drivetime Mahatma: Street sense often lost at crossroads

posted: 12/26/2015 3:23 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: What is the worst-designed intersection in Arkansas? Could it be Markham Street and University Avenue in Little Rock? -- J.D.

Drivetime Mahatma: Clarendon span isn't prettified

posted: 12/19/2015 3:02 a.m. Discuss

Dear Drivetime: I live in Clarendon, where the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department completed a new bridge over the White River. I can't help but think the agency feels rural folk lack the ability to appreciate aesthetics. The Big Rock bridges have pine trees imprinted. Overpasses in Conway, Lonoke and Fayetteville have an impression of the state. We have -- gray concrete. Another issue is that the bridge has been finished for months but hasn't been opened. What gives? Can you get the Highway Department to show us some love? -- Unappreciated

Before the digital music revolution -- way before -- there was the piano.
