Dear Mahatma: Any idea when the section of Van Buren Street between West Markham Street and Kavanaugh Boulevard will be resurfaced? It's in horrible condition, made worse by winter. -- Mid-Town Driver

Arkansas has a rich and complicated history. And the richly complicated people who made that history left behind artifacts that describe their lives. Some of those artifacts are lost forever. Others survive and are accessible to the public.

Dear Mahatma: Will Scott Street in downtown Little Rock be extended two-way south to Sixth Street now that construction has started on the Broadway Bridge? Doing so would facilitate traffic flow when taking the Main Street Bridge. -- Weary Traveler

All sorts of things pass across the traffic desk. The best lately is a 192-page book titled "Little Rock's Traffic Code and Safety Manual."

Dear Mahatma: I want to take a photo of cars parked illegally in a handicapped spot and send it to someone who can issue a ticket. Can I do this with a signed statement? -- Duty Calls

Dear Mahatma: I live near Murray Park, where there are many incidents of people doing doughnuts. It's also common to have loud motorcyclists speeding on Rebsamen Park Road. Why are police officers regularly stationed along Rebsamen in the day when there is little evidence of law enforcement late at night when the real problems occur? -- Proud City Taxpayer

Dear Mahatma: I recently acquired my first pickup truck. Someone told me it was illegal to drive it with the tailgate down. True? — Magnolia

O Great Mahatma: On the new route off Interstate 430 heading to Bass Pro Shop, did the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department intend to build a speed bump with the concrete exit portion onto the asphalt? Will this be ground down to a respectable height?

Dear Mahatma: There must be 50 partially filled potholes on Chenal Parkway between Bowman Road and Kanis Road. Could you check with the street gurus and find out if any thought has been given to repaving that stretch? -- Rattled Teeth

Dear Mahatma: Why don't the Arkansas State Police write tickets for texting while driving? Every day on the commute to and from Little Rock and Conway on Interstate 40, texting fools weave, go too slow or shift unexpectedly into adjacent lanes. The common factor is fingers flying over cellphones. -- Frustrated with Knuckleheads

O Mahatma Who Finds Answers to Simple Questions: The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department has recently tried to re-stripe the north and south lanes of Interstate 430. A huge mess was made. Why choose to use marking tape instead of the thermoplastic paint used elsewhere in our great state? -- Concerned Taxpayer

Dear Mahatma: I am sending this as I have become aware of people using Grandma's handicap placard when she's not with them. I recently had to get one of these hangers myself and know that the handicapped person must be in the vehicle. There are never enough handicap places, so this is very hard on people who really need them. -- Sheila

Dear Mahatma: It's time to address a dangerous problem with Interstate 630 exits to Baptist Medical Center. I exit from I-630 west and have to immediately get into the far right lane. Never have I had a car yield exiting from eastbound I-630. I think there needs to be a stop sign for cars exiting from I-630 eastbound since they have a longer exit lane. -- Throw on My Brakes
