Drivetime Mahatma: I-430 crews installing fiber optics

posted: 06/18/2016 2:38 a.m. Comments 2

Maharajah of the Motorways: I've seen some excavation on the east side of Interstate 430. In some sections there are Ditch Witch drillers and in others there are bulldozers and excavators. We are used to having people digging up our neighborhoods to bury new fiber optic cables and other stuff, but not on a major artery. What the heck? -- Befuddled on the By-Pass

Credit Tom Butler's knees -- both replaced -- to baseball.

The old bridge was out there somewhere, but hard to find in the dense woods and driving rain.

Drivetime Mahatma: RV riders' rules sparse in state law

Dear Mahatma: You recently answered a question about towed trailers and passengers, but that begs other questions. Such as whether passengers in an RV have to be buckled in, or if they can walk around while the RV is on the road, or if they can cook, or drink beer. -- Vacationer

Drivetime Mahatma: Researcher for column batting .333

Dear Mahatma: I guarantee 1937 was not the year Arkansas put photos on a driver's license. In 1973 my wife and I sold Bible books in North Carolina and were asked by a potential buyer to show our driver's licenses. She thought we were underage. Our licenses at the time were printed on unlaminated paper with the shape of Arkansas on a blue background, but no picture. Perhaps a fat-fingered '73? -- M

Drivetime Mahatma: Mug shots on licenses date to '37

Dear Mahatma: When did the state of Arkansas start requiring photos on a driver's license? Inquiring minds want to know. -- Stuck in a Meeting

Drivetime Mahatma: Gas, diesel prices align with supply

updated: 05/21/2016 2:24 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: Why is diesel fuel now the same price as regular gasoline? I first noticed this near Eureka Springs last August, and have seen it recently in Florida, too. Usually diesel is 15-20 percent more than regular gasoline. -- Merit Badge

Drivetime Mahatma: Huh? Road getting lots of attention

Dear Mahatma: Be patient on Interstate 30, he says. Live long to see fix, he says. How about finding out when will the total repaving of Cantrell Road be done? This route runs through the entire city, yet it appears no one in state government gives two cents. -- Beyond Inquisitive

DRIVETIME: Be patient, live long to see I-30 fix

Dear Mahatma: How deep must the holes get on Interstate 30 between Interstates 40 and 440 before repairs are made? -- Inquisitive

DRIVETIME: I-30 plans a hot topic downtown

updated: 05/02/2016 11:49 a.m. Discuss

We did our best to be a bug on the wall this past Tuesday at the Wyndham Riverfront hotel in North Little Rock, scene of a public meeting about the 30 Crossing project, a fancy name for the biggest interstate highway project in Arkansas.

DRIVETIME: Vanity plates not fit for print

Dear Mahatma: I recently saw a license plate that read "Ta Ta, God." What do you think this was saying? -- J.H. in Sherwood

DRIVETIME: About those golf carts on the streets of the Heights

updated: 04/18/2016 5:45 a.m. Comments 2

Mahatma: My husband and I were walking in the Heights the other day. We were on Hawthorne Street when a golf cart came toward us. A boy who looked about 10 was driving while his father and another child rode along. They stopped at a nearby house and I asked the father, in my best innocent voice, "Is it legal for a child of that age to drive on the street?" He replied, "No, but I allow it." What say you? -- Perambulatory Person

Drivetime Mahatma: No lane restriction planned for trucks on I-40 from Little Rock to Conway

updated: 04/11/2016 5:45 a.m. Comments 2

Mahatma: Here's a random thought. Install signs on Interstate 40 between North Little Rock and Conway that say TRUCKS USE RIGHT 2 LANES. -- Pat

She likes to talk, Brenda Fulkerson admits. She did as a child, when her grandmother promised her a quarter if only she’d stop talking for 15 minutes.

Drivetime Mahatma: Truck bed for mulch, not people

Dear Mahatma: Is it legal for passengers to be in a travel trailer while moving? Much more comfortable than cramped up in a vehicle. — George
