What to look for on Smart Talk Wednesday, November 21, 2018:

Are you traveling by car this Thanksgiving weekend?  AAA says more than 54 million Americans have travel plans and about 48 million of them will drive to their destinations.

That means there will be a lot of vehicles on the road.  More than a few may be breaking laws such as speeding, not yielding to traffic, texting while driving, or passing in a no passing zone. During a high traffic volume weekend when bad weather is a possibility, we'll also ask about laws concerning driving too fast for conditions.

Those are amongst the laws most often disobeyed by motorists.  However, there are other laws that drivers simply aren't sure of.  For example, when is it lawful to pass on the right side or when must a vehicle yield to a pedestrian?

That's where Wednesday's Smart Talk comes in.  With Thanksgiving week being the biggest travel period of the year, Pennsylvania State Police Corporal and Public Information Officer Adam Reed and Penndot District 8 Safety Officer Fritzi Schreffler appear on the program to answer questions about the laws of the land related to motor vehicles and driving.
