Drivetime Mahatma: Left turners to welcome traffic circle

posted: 07/23/2016 3:45 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: I work in a very busy area and use Fair Park and Zoo Drive in Little Rock. Traffic is awful in the afternoon and turning left onto Fair Park to get to Interstate 630 is very dangerous. Why can't they install four-way stop signs here? -- Thanks for Listening

DRIVETIME: Extra troopers on highways + why Arkansas closes rest areas during tourist season

posted: 07/16/2016 2:46 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: You really made something happen. In your July 2 column, you addressed a concern about speeding through construction zones. The very next day, the construction zone on Interstate 430 at Stagecoach Road was crawling with state troopers, several of whom had motorists pulled over. Good job! -- Admirer

Drivetime Mahatma: Boats risky on street, driver says

posted: 07/09/2016 2:15 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: I live in an area of Little Rock noted for hilly and curvy streets. On more than one occasion I have almost been hit head-on because of people who park their big boats on the street. Does the city code address the parking of boats and trailers on neighborhood streets? -- Ahoy Mate

DRIVETIME: Mind that work-zone speed limit

posted: 07/02/2016 2:36 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: Why is there no enforcement of the reduced speeds in interstate construction zones? If you're gonna put 'em up, enforce 'em. -- Tired

Drivetime Mahatma: Signs point to tall tale in warning

posted: 06/25/2016 2:22 a.m. Comment 1

Oh Wise Abdul of Asphalt and Aggregate: Is there validity to the story, passed down by generations, that in the 1800s someone put a sign on the side of the Southwest Trail near the Red River crossing in Hempstead County? The sign said "Stop! Turn Around! There is nothing on the other side of this river but dry land and rattlesnakes. You will starve to death." What's on the other side? Why, Texas. -- Fifth Generation Arkansan

Drivetime Mahatma: I-430 crews installing fiber optics

posted: 06/18/2016 2:38 a.m. Comments 2

Maharajah of the Motorways: I've seen some excavation on the east side of Interstate 430. In some sections there are Ditch Witch drillers and in others there are bulldozers and excavators. We are used to having people digging up our neighborhoods to bury new fiber optic cables and other stuff, but not on a major artery. What the heck? -- Befuddled on the By-Pass

Needing knees

Credit Tom Butler's knees -- both replaced -- to baseball.

Spanning history

The old bridge was out there somewhere, but hard to find in the dense woods and driving rain.

Drivetime Mahatma: RV riders' rules sparse in state law

posted: 06/11/2016 3:23 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: You recently answered a question about towed trailers and passengers, but that begs other questions. Such as whether passengers in an RV have to be buckled in, or if they can walk around while the RV is on the road, or if they can cook, or drink beer. -- Vacationer

Drivetime Mahatma: Researcher for column batting .333

posted: 06/04/2016 2:31 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: I guarantee 1937 was not the year Arkansas put photos on a driver's license. In 1973 my wife and I sold Bible books in North Carolina and were asked by a potential buyer to show our driver's licenses. She thought we were underage. Our licenses at the time were printed on unlaminated paper with the shape of Arkansas on a blue background, but no picture. Perhaps a fat-fingered '73? -- M
