Drivetime Mahatma: Dilemma: Take call or stay in lane

posted: 10/03/2015 3:31 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: I sense the centerlines between traffic lanes are becoming invisible in Little Rock. Why else would oncoming traffic drift into my lane? The problem seems especially acute on Hinson Road. I realize the city's plan to slow traffic on Hinson has been put on hold. Why not put rumble strips in the center? -- Scared of the Center

DRIVETIME MAHATMA: Big Rock signs styled by the book

posted: 09/26/2015 3:19 a.m. Comment 1

Dear Mahatma: I have noticed that on the new signage at the Big Rock interchange some signs are in capital letters — such as DOWNTOWN — while others are in upper and lower case. Is there a rule that keeps the lettering from being consistent?

Dear Mahatma: Seventh Street in downtown Little Rock is bad news. What plans does the city have for fixing it? -- Bumpity Bump

Drivetime Mahatma: No money to overlay rocky ride

posted: 09/12/2015 3:22 a.m. Discuss

Dear Karnak of Local Transportation: I compliment city, county and state agencies on their efforts to fill potholes and combat road degradation. But a major artery in downtown Little Rock is being neglected. Broadway! It is so chattered that driving from Markham to Interstate 630 almost makes my dental fillings fall out. -- Duke

Drivetime Mahatma: Cables not death traps for cyclists

posted: 09/05/2015 3:45 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: Was any consideration given to motorcyclists when the cable median barriers were installed on the interstates? I have read a few reports of motorcyclist deaths as a result of impact with these barriers. I understand the importance, but what about the impact on motorcyclists? -- Two-Wheeler

Drivetime Mahatma: For Kanis, more lanes on the way

posted: 08/29/2015 4:52 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: What are the plans to improve Kanis/Heinous Road between Shackleford and Chenal Parkway? It's already horrible and will get worse when those apartment complexes under construction are opened. -- Everett
