WILL YOU BE "A NAUGHTY DRIVER"--OR "A NICE DRIVER"--THIS HOLIDAY-SEASON?  A NEW SURVEY REVEALS AN UPTICK IN AGGRESSIVE DRIVING, AROUND THE WINTER-HOLIDAYS--WHICH ISN'T SURPRISING, GIVEN INCREASED TRAFFIC AND STRESS.  ACCORDING TO "STATE FARM", AGGRESSIVE DRIVING CAN INCLUDE SPEEDING, TAILGATING, AND IMPROPER LANE-CHANGING OR PASSING.  A MAJORITY OF THE SURVEY'S RESPONDENTS SAID THAT THEY'VE EXPERIENCED AN ACT OF AGGRESSIVE DRIVING SIX TIMES--OR MORE--IN THE LAST THREE MONTHS.  ALMOST HALF ADMITTED TO DRIVING AGGRESSIVELY.  AND, A THIRD SAID THAT THEIR LIKELIHOOD TO ENGAGE IN AGGRESSIVE DRIVING INCREASES DURING THE WINTER-HOLIDAYS.  HOW CAN DRIVERS "BE NICER" ON THE ROAD?  FIRST, OBEY TRAFFIC-LAWS:  RUNNING TRAFFIC-SIGNALS AND SPEEDING ACCOUNT FOR ONE-THIRD OF ALL FATAL CAR-CRASHES IN AMERICA.  SECOND, CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS:  REMEMBER, IT'S NOT A RACE--AND IT'S NOT PERSONAL.  GIVE OTHER DRIVERS SPACE--AND THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT.  FOR MORE ON THE SURVEY--AND SAFE-DRIVING TIPS--VISIT "STATE-FARM"-DOT-COM.
