Does this apply to drivers with radio decals?

Drivers of cars with bumper stickers, window decals, personalized license plates and other "territorial markers" not only get mad when someone cuts in their lane or is slow to respond to a changed traffic light, but they are far more likely than those who do not personalize their cars to use their vehicles to express rage -- by honking, tailgating and other aggressive behavior.

Ie, they are more susceptible to road rage. But from my reading of the article, it's not that these people are more aggressive, it's that these markers "personalise" their car and make them more likely to be defensive about their space.

Does this mean 93.3 contributes to Singaporean drivers' unfriendly attitudes by giving out car decals?
