Hol­i­day driv­ers not so merry

Tampa Bay Times - - Business -

’Tis the sea­son for … road rage? Ac­cord­ing to a re­cent study from gas tracker GasBuddy.com, Flor­ida ranked No. 6 in states with the most ag­gres­sive hol­i­day driv­ers, up from its No. 8 rank last year. The study an­a­lyzed data from its app for the Thanks­giv­ing hol­i­day week­end and mea­sured how fre­quently driv­ers ac­cel­er­ated quickly, braked hard and sped. Driv­ers, it found, were more likely to make ag­gres­sive moves dur­ing the be­gin­ning of a hol­i­day sea­son, such as when some­one is on their way to a hol­i­day event or desti­na­tion. The calmest times, GasBuddy said, was on the ac­tual day of the hol­i­day. Ge­or­gia ranked No. 1 in the re­port, fol­lowed by Cal­i­for­nia (No. 2) and Texas (No. 3).
