Hey: The traffic signal at Maumelle Boulevard and Odom Boulevard South is out. I called the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department. They said it was the city's problem. I called the city, and the person who answered the phone said it was the Highway Department's problem. I figured this is something you can address. -- Joe

Dear Mahatma: I was on Interstate 30 the other day and got behind some chump in a pickup. He was hauling a trailer, and sand was blowing out that thing all over my nice car. Isn't that illegal? -- Two out of Three

O Diligent Researcher: Driving on Arkansas 9 south of Paron on Saturday I came upon a gaggle of bike riders blocking the road at 25 mph. As the vehicles behind started to increase, the patience quickly decreased. For whatever reason two cars directly behind the group made no attempt to pass. This led to dangerous passing on a hilly, turning highway with few passing zones. Can you shed some light on the legalities? -- Want to Live.

The number of healthy infants who die in their sleep in Arkansas remains stubbornly high despite decades of efforts by public health officials.

But the Siloam Springs couple smoked marijuana earlier that night. And while all three slept on two pushed-together love seats, Andrew died of asphyxiation.
Now the parents are serving prison sentences for manslaughter.

Dear Mahatma: The posted speed limit on U.S. 165 in Allport, in Lonoke County, was 45 mph. Now those signs are gone. What would the speed limit be in that area now? Could this be a speed trap in the making? -- Mike

Dear Mahatma: Can you tell me why the city places those red, eight-sided road signs in west Little Rock? It has something to do with traffic. Where do drivers go to find out what they are good for? -- Ciao, Baby
