What to look for on Smart Talk Monday, March 31, 2014:
When it comes to driving, we all have at least one pet peeve that drives us absolutely bonkers. In fact, we probably have more like two, three, or four of them.
There are many pet peeve offenders out there on our roads. There’s the driver(s) who’s texting, Facebooking, or tweeting. There’s the slow-poke going fifteen miles below the speed limit, and behind him is an entire train of cars because it’s a one lane road with nowhere to pass. Or perhaps, it’s the driver that never uses his turn signal and whips around a corner at the last minute.
How about the speeders who whip out from behind you to pass to only get as far as two cars ahead. Or the tailgaters. Or the drivers who never slow down at a yield sign and cut off traffic as they merge on to the highway.

Some of these quirks actually break driving laws. What are those laws and whose breaking them? Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Adam Reed joins us on Monday’s Smart Talk to discuss driver’s top pet peeves and how those pet peeves relate to driving laws.
What is your biggest driving pet peeve? Share your pet peeves with us in the comments section and we may just use it on air.
