Drivetime Mahatma: For Kanis, more lanes on the way

posted: 08/29/2015 4:52 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: What are the plans to improve Kanis/Heinous Road between Shackleford and Chenal Parkway? It's already horrible and will get worse when those apartment complexes under construction are opened. -- Everett

Drivetime Mahatma: Wet I-630 sends cars over edge

updated: 08/22/2015 3:32 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: Often when it rains, cars fall off Interstate 630 from the westbound lane, just past University Avenue. They slide down the hill behind the Sears auto shop. This picture was taken yesterday as two vehicles, one a car and the other a pickup, both fell off the road within minutes of each other. The photo was taken from my office in the Doctors Building. Notice the grass, how torn up it is from vehicles falling off over the past few days. -- Don

Drivetime Mahatma: I-430/630 grass fix taking root

posted: 08/15/2015 2:48 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: I am pleased most roadways in and around Little Rock are so green despite the heat. An exception is the hill surrounding the Big Rock near the wonderful new Interstate 430/630 interchange. I hope plans are being made to sow new grass this fall or otherwise remedy that unsightly fire hazard. -- Jody

Drivetime Mahatma: Pickup-bed riders buck law, safety

Hi: I saw a person riding in the open bed of a pickup. Is there a law prohibiting this? I seem to remember this is not permitted. -- Dennis

Drivetime Mahatma: Dealer tag redefines temporary

posted: 08/01/2015 3:29 a.m. Comment 1

Dear Mahatma: I see a car weekdays on Cumberland Street, LaHarpe Boulevard, Cantrell Road and Riverfront Drive. The temporary dealer tag is several months expired. I resent this deadbeat.

Drivetime Mahatma: Recording police work mostly OK

posted: 07/25/2015 3:43 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: A scene in a TV program has me wondering. Is it illegal to record an interaction with a law enforcement officer? In the scene, a teen found himself under arrest for recording the audio when he was stopped for a traffic violation. If I hit record on my iPhone when stopped, am I breaking the law? -- Audiophile

Drivetime Mahatma: A vanity plate costs $25 extra

posted: 07/18/2015 4:56 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: I would like to know about vanity plates. Are those plates more expensive than regular plates? Is it a one-time fee or annually? -- Sent from iPad

Drivetime Mahatma: Two states at deadly high, low

posted: 07/11/2015 4:18 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: I was fascinated by the fatality analysis of last week. Can you briefly tell us the highest and lowest state rates? I find it interesting that California, one of the most urbanized and congested states, has significantly lower fatality rates than the rural expanses of Arkansas. -- Walter

Drivetime Mahatma: Fatalities way down since 1921

posted: 07/04/2015 2:31 a.m. Discuss

Sir: I read your column of June 13 on the 1950s version of Little Rock's traffic and safety manual, and note your observation on the old photos of wrecked cars in which many did not survive. Then I turn to page 3B and note "8 reported killed on Arkansas roads." I wonder what the weekly slaughter amounted to back in the day? I'm from California, population 38.8 million, and am shocked by the traffic death a day in the Natural State, population 2.9 million. How compares the "then" and "now?" -- Mike

Drivetime Mahatma: Decision on rough road ahead

posted: 06/27/2015 2:22 a.m. Discuss

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

Things of the past

posted: 06/21/2015 2:16 a.m. Discuss

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.

Drivetime Mahatma: LR reroute set when span shuts

posted: 06/20/2015 5:22 a.m. Discuss

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

Drivetime Mahatma: '55 guide's traffic tips remain apt

posted: 06/13/2015 2:38 a.m. Discuss

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."

Drivetime Mahatma: Disabled's spots tough to enforce

posted: 06/06/2015 3:33 a.m. Discuss

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
