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

A couple of weeks ago there appeared here a list of the most traveled stretches of highway in Arkansas, data compiled by the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department.

Drivetime Mahatma: Called 311, 2 potholes vanished

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

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.

For record setters, the mile outpaces all other competitors

Jose Castelano was flying along, looking cool in shades and an Oregon shirt, spectators cheering for him and the rest of the elite runners on the course near the soccer fields at Burns Park in North Little Rock.

Drivetime Mahatma: Crews race to fill passel of potholes

posted: 07/12/2014 2:52 a.m. Discuss

Mahatma: We should rename Little Rock to "Pot Hole City." Chenal Parkway has potholes that haven't been fixed in two years. Our mayor doesn't need a pothole hotline -- he needs to fix them. I need to send the city a bill for front-end alignment. -- Pothole Dodger

Drivetime Mahatma: Duct tape won't fix a citation

posted: 07/05/2014 2:37 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: Saw a car on West Markham. Side mirror hanging by electrical wire. Rear corner of car held together by duct tape. Rear brake light completely obscured. Is there any enforcement of car safety requirements? Were we safer when we had safety inspections? -- Jim Jr.

Drivetime Mahatma: LR judge's buy paved road's way

posted: 06/28/2014 2:37 a.m. Comments 2

Dear Mahatma: Since moving to west Little Rock 19 years ago, I have been curious about the naming of Rodney Parham Road. I recently found two different answers. One was that Rodney Parham was a young boy hanged by the Union Army. The other was that he was a judge. Which is it? -- Connie

Drivetime Mahatma: Stoplight at Kroger all kosher

posted: 06/21/2014 3:09 a.m. Comments 2

O Wise One: I've always heard the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department won't allow a traffic signal on a private drive, since proliferation of such signals would impede traffic. How did the Kroger store on Arkansas 10 get a signal? Who paid for it? -- Watching the Waivers

Drivetime Mahatma: Wire heist dims light at crossing

posted: 06/14/2014 3:15 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: I was driving into the Big Rock [I-430 and I-630] exchange at night and found it dark and dangerous. About a dozen light towers appeared to be ready but weren't illuminated. It seems that with all the lane shifts, barricades and barrels, lighting up the roadway would be a priority. Why hasn't the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department switched on the lights? -- Mike

DRIVETIME MAHATMA: Silent ride a sorrowful bikers' plea

posted: 05/24/2014 2:55 a.m. Comment 1
