Drivetime Mahatma: Roadside radar feeds sign boards

posted: 02/28/2015 2:24 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: There are a lot of small orange trailers on Interstates 430 and 40. They have small solar panels and radar guns. Is this for traffic count or speed? They seem to be every 1,000 feet. -- Ed

Drivetime Mahatma: Kindly get snow, ice off car top

posted: 02/21/2015 3:13 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: After a winter storm, as we bebop around in our ice-covered vehicles, some people don't think or care to get the ice off their hoods, roofs and trunks. So an iceberg the size of the one that sank the Titanic becomes airborne and crashes into the following vehicle. This shows a lack of respect for others and could hurt someone. Take the time and do the right thing. -- Mr. Good Advice

An old Lovin' Spoonful song about country music's ground zero -- "There's thirteen hundred and fifty-two guitar pickers in Nashville" -- could apply to this town, which calls itself the folk music capital of the world.

Drivetime Mahatma: Driver sees red when light dallies

posted: 02/14/2015 2:19 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: I recently sat motionless on Rodney Parham Road at Cantrell Road waiting for an unchanging red light to turn green. At 5:03 p.m., I dialed the city services number (311) and a recording said it was closed. At 5:17 p.m., I joined the stampede making hazardous U-turns to escape while I still had gas in my tank. -- Annoyed

Drivetime Mahatma: I-530 crew gets relief, out in open

posted: 02/07/2015 3:12 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: We drive through the construction project on Interstate 530 south of Little Rock and have seen workers and dump-truck drivers urinating in view of people driving up and down the interstate. What should we do about this? -- Full Frontal

Drivetime Mahatma: Pavement space not sold for ads

posted: 01/31/2015 2:35 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: On Sixth Street downtown, just west of Main, there's a rectangular sign painted on the pavement. It's right in the middle of the street, it's purple and white, and says "JRMC. Where care comes to life." Is the city selling advertising space on the streets of Little Rock? -- Your Pal Jeannie

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
