posted: 12/31/2016 5:45 a.m. Discuss

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.

Drivetime Mahatma: Drivetime Mahatma: How fast is too fast in fast lane

posted: 12/24/2016 5:36 a.m. Comments 8

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

posted: 12/17/2016 2:39 a.m. Discuss

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.

posted: 12/10/2016 3:08 a.m. Discuss

posted: 12/03/2016 2:52 a.m. Comment 1

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

Drivetime Mahatma: Big trucks' tags can go front, back

posted: 11/26/2016 3:25 a.m. Discuss

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
