Drivetime Mahatma: Dangerous distractions beset drive

posted: 12/20/2014 3:17 a.m. Discuss

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

Drivetime Mahatma: LaHarpe's crosswalks for the bold

posted: 12/06/2014 2:33 a.m. Discuss

Dear Guy: Drivers should yield to pedestrians at marked crossings. What gives me a problem are the two non-intersection, but clearly marked, crossings on four-lane LaHarpe Boulevard between State and Cumberland streets. The speed limit is 40, which most drivers take as a minimum. It's not safe to come to a complete stop there, no matter how many pedestrians languish. -- Perplexed

Drivetime Mahatma: Safe driving is expected of lawmen

Dear Mahatma: I make a daily commute to North Little Rock, and I am often passed by a police car going well over the speed limit, no lights or sirens. How can they do this while riding herd on the rest of us? More often than not it's a sheriff's car. -- Puzzled Senior

Terry Shipman lives in a house, built around 1890, that could use some work. He's committed to doing as much of it himself as he can, and in the process has learned plenty about the challenges of renovating and restoring a historic house.

Drivetime Mahatma: Horns wail when she obeys sign

posted: 11/22/2014 2:28 a.m. Comment 1

Dear Mahatma: There is a sign at the intersection of Mara Lynn and Shackleford roads that says eastbound traffic cannot turn right on red between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. When I obey, drivers behind me become agitated. Some even honk. What is the reason for this sign? -- Yvonne
