Dear Mahatma: One of my friends thinks there are a lot of one-vehicle fatal accidents. She thinks there has been a big increase. True? -- Horse Whisperer

Dear Mahatma: I work in a very busy area and use Fair Park and Zoo Drive in Little Rock. Traffic is awful in the afternoon and turning left onto Fair Park to get to Interstate 630 is very dangerous. Why can't they install four-way stop signs here? -- Thanks for Listening

Dear Mahatma: You really made something happen. In your July 2 column, you addressed a concern about speeding through construction zones. The very next day, the construction zone on Interstate 430 at Stagecoach Road was crawling with state troopers, several of whom had motorists pulled over. Good job! -- Admirer

Dear Mahatma: I live in an area of Little Rock noted for hilly and curvy streets. On more than one occasion I have almost been hit head-on because of people who park their big boats on the street. Does the city code address the parking of boats and trailers on neighborhood streets? -- Ahoy Mate

Dear Mahatma: Why is there no enforcement of the reduced speeds in interstate construction zones? If you're gonna put 'em up, enforce 'em. -- Tired

Oh Wise Abdul of Asphalt and Aggregate: Is there validity to the story, passed down by generations, that in the 1800s someone put a sign on the side of the Southwest Trail near the Red River crossing in Hempstead County? The sign said "Stop! Turn Around! There is nothing on the other side of this river but dry land and rattlesnakes. You will starve to death." What's on the other side? Why, Texas. -- Fifth Generation Arkansan

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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