posted: 09/20/2014 2:51 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: What is with the red lights at the new overpass and the one south of it on Shackleford? We were headed north on Shackleford, were stopped at Hermitage and it took us six (6) lights to get through. Can't these lights be synchronized? Would appreciate some help here. -- Stuck in Traffic

posted: 09/13/2014 2:40 a.m. Discuss

Dear Drivetime: The intersection of Markham and Chenal has "youth" out on most weekends fundraising. Some would say panhandling. Does the city allow this? Sometimes they have signs or wear uniforms, but sometimes there is no identification. Sometimes they're aggressive. -- Flabbergasted

posted: 08/30/2014 2:48 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: Is there a target completion date for the Big Rock Exchange? I'd heard mid-2015, but every day I drive through I hope the project is ahead of schedule. Will it open in phases or all at once? -- Big Rock is a Big Pain

Drivetime Mahatma: On flashing to warn of speed traps

posted: 08/23/2014 3:26 a.m. Discuss

Dear Dudeness: Back in the 1950s and 1960s, even us kids knew the two rules of the road: All trash had to be thrown out the window, and the driver had to flash his headlights at oncoming traffic to warn about the policeman ahead. It's obvious the trash rule is still followed. Is the flashing still OK? -- Flashy Trasher

It's tough being a celebrity. You put yourself out there, and all people do is laugh and point and mock.

Drivetime Mahatma: On big rigs the noise is exhausting

posted: 08/16/2014 2:48 a.m. Discuss

Dude: After tiring of having 18-wheelers wake me up with their extremely loud exhaust, I looked up the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. It seems to me that the Arkansas Highway Police doesn't enforce the standards of Part 325.91 about exhaust systems and which covers mufflers and noise. Could you check with them and let the citizens of this great state know? -- Rattled Panes

Drivetime Mahatma: Who yields at crossing? Polite folks

posted: 08/09/2014 2:50 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: Our three generations of family disagree on who has the right of way in the following hypothetical scenario. Driver A heads north on First Street. He arrives at Universe Street, stopping at a stop sign. His intent is to turn left. Driver B heads south on First Street and arrives at a stop sign on Universe Street immediately after Driver A. Driver B's intent is to go straight across. Who has the right of way? Our older generation says the driver going straight. The younger generation says the driver who arrived first. The middle generation is split. We have a new 16-year-old driver, so this is important. -- Patriarch

posted: 07/26/2014 2:45 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: A comment about "Pothole City." I called the city's 311 number and reported two potholes in front of our home. They were filled the next day. Way to go, Public Works Department. -- Happy on Skyway

Drivetime Mahatma : Turn lanes not islands for walkers

posted: 07/19/2014 2:43 a.m. Discuss

A man and his dog

Once upon a time, a wise and famous editor wrote a book about writing for newspapers. The title and author escape me at the moment, but the cover had a big pencil on it.
