posted: 07/26/2014 2:45 a.m. Discuss

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.

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: Jam zone's wider I-40 fortuitous

posted: 05/17/2014 3:31 a.m. Discuss

Oh Great and Wise Mahatma: Last week after slogging through an hour of stop-and-go gawker traffic on Interstate 40 between Morgan and Mayflower, the traffic miraculously reached normal highway velocity. Lo and behold, the roadway became THREE lanes headed west. Was this connected to tornado relief? -- Tired Traveler

DRIVETIME MAHATMA: Merging advice - move it

posted: 05/03/2014 2:23 a.m. Discuss

DTM: What’s the best or correct method for merging two lanes of traffic? Merge as soon as traffic stops or continue on to the merge point? An example is leaving downtown from Cantrell to the Interstate 30 bridge. A long line forms on the left. Often, drivers who attempt to travel to the front in the right lane are blocked, cursed and browbeaten by line monitors. — Fence and Guardrail
