Dear Mahatma: How come the lights at the Interstate 30 and Interstate 40 interchange are never turned on at night? It sure is dark, and there’s always a ton of traffic. — Let There Be Light

Dear Young Fellow: Are gas stations required to provide a restroom for use by the traveling public? What do the ACLU, NAACP, NCAA, AARP or state Legislature have to say? Not good to pull off the interstate for a tank of gas, pile in for snacks and Slurpees and be denied use of a toilet. -- Holding It.

Yo: Suppose you are on an interstate, driving the speed limit in the outside lane. You come up to slower traffic and move to the inside lane to pass. A giant pickup gets right on your tail. A long line of speedy devils is behind the pickup. You are required to get out of the way. How fast can I go to do that without getting a speeding ticket? The cops always nail the lead driver. -- Jack

Mr. Mahatma: At the Vimy Ridge Road intersection with the north service road on Interstate 30, there is limited sight distance because of foliage and the curvature of the frontage road. Can the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department clear out all the trees and undergrowth to improve visibility at this much traveled intersection? -- Bobby

Merry Mahatma: On 65th Street at night certain traffic lights seem to operate backward. Instead of traffic on 65th Street having preference, the cross streets seem to. What gives? -- Observant Bill

Dear Mahatma: I was thinking that I heard a few years ago about a highway project to repair and widen U.S. 425 south of Hamburg to the Louisiana line. Parts of this road are like a washboard, and when it rains, if you aren't careful, you could end up in the other lane, or even in the ditch. Is there a plan for this to happen? -- Rough Rider

Dear Mahatma: I was recently driving behind two large dump trucks and saw neither had a license plate. Does the law exempt such trucks from tags or plates, or are they all ignoring the law so that motorists who get chipped windshields can't track them down? -- Very Curious
