'Tis the season … for bad driving

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

The holidays are supposed to bring out the good in people, but that's not the case if you're on the road.

A survey by State Farm found that 64 percent of drivers experienced aggressive driving six times in the past three months. Forty-four owned up to aggressive behavior themselves.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration sites improper lane changing, speeding and tailgating as aggressive behavior.

An industry research group called "The Highway Loss Data" claims collusions increase by almost 20 percent in December, with the six days around Christmas being the most hectic.

This year, the worst traffic day may fall on the Friday before Christmas. You have shoppers, the commuting traffic and people leaving town for the weekend.

It's a mix of traffic that will likely lead to a driver's worst nightmare.
