Drivetime Mahatma: U.S. 425 rough ride at border

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

Drivetime Mahatma: DRIVETIME: Near Little Rock mall, wrong-way turn tempts

updated: 11/21/2016 5:45 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: When you leave the Promenade shopping center just west of McDonald's on Chenal Parkway, there is no sign indicating you are entering a one-way eastbound lane. The westbound lane is mostly hidden by a wide median full of foliage. A driver unfamiliar with the area could easily turn left, west, the wrong way. I know, because I did it, and so did a friend. Help! -- Martha

Drivetime Mahatma: Game, Fish tags reel in extra cash

posted: 11/12/2016 3:36 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: We broke down and bought a specialty license plate -- the redbird is beautiful! I notice lots of these Game and Fish Commission plates. How much of the fee actually gets to Game & Fish? Is it just a little pocket change? As a state employee in another department, I'm curious. -- Nancy

Drivetime Mahatma: Driver asks if iffy repair of van legal

posted: 11/05/2016 2:58 a.m. Discuss

Hello: A van I see on the roads of Little Rock seems to have been "repaired" with the kind of material that is squirted around pipes to prevent air from outside a building from coming in. The entire back panel of the van, metal and window, is being held on the van apparently by just that foamy stuff. Any thoughts? How far back from it should I drive, just in case the whole thing blows out while I am behind it? -- Alinda

posted: 10/22/2016 3:04 a.m. Discuss

Dear Sultan of the Streets: I'm headed south on Interstate 30 and exit at Sixth Street. Parked in the natural-gas refueling station is a bright red Dodge with a bold ASP logo painted on the passenger side front panel. Nothing at all on the driver's side. What's up with this? -- Hot Tamale

Drivetime Mahatma: Person asks if noisy cars getting pass

posted: 10/15/2016 3:34 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: Once upon a time, there were rules about how much noise cars could make. Didn't drivers get a ticket for having damaged mufflers? Why aren't there rules, laws and regulations about this? -- Retired Librarian
