Dear Knowledgeable One: Surely you have addressed this before, but why do big-rig drivers block lanes of the interstate highways when approaching construction zones? They leave huge gaps, causing even more congestion. It’s infuriating! — Golfer Girl

Dear Mahatma: My newly licensed granddaughter tells me that we can no longer “ask” an oncoming driver to lower his high beams by quickly flashing our own lights. Is this a new law, or is she incorrect, in which case could you be the one to set her right, if you get my drift? — Ann

Dear Mahatma: I read with interest about the decline in traffic fatalities and wonder if mandatory driver’s education would reduce the number even further. Or is it mandatory? And why aren’t parallel parking and interstate merging included in the road test? My son has his license, and I feel it was far too easy to get. I won’t let him on the highway because he’s not ready, yet legally he could, and that’s kind of scary. — Thinks Licensing Too Easy

June 23rd, 1862 I am commencing to keep a journal for several reasons. It is very improving both in penmanship and in learning any one to commit his thoughts to paper with accuracy.
