Is the Color of Your Car Causing You to Have More Accidents?
This may sound crazy but is the color of your car responsible for being involved in more accidents?
According to the website Family Handyman, the color of your car could increase your chances of being in a wreck. Driving a black car is considered the most dangerous followed by gray, blue, and red. Of course, there's always some logical answer as to why, first of all, the darker the car the harder to see especially at night. Black cars or darker cars are also more likely to be stolen because they are hard to spot as opposed to a lighter color vehicles.
Silver has become the most popular car color followed closely by white cars, according to the Kelley Blue Book. Monash University’s Accident Research Centre reveals that white cars are the safest car you can drive based on their visibility and color.
According to the study, white cars are 12 percent less likely to be involved in an accident than black cars. However, some reports showed that yellow cars may be even safer than white cars but who wants to ride around in a school bus color unless that's your preference?
Finally, a lot is still determined by the driver themselves, do they have a good driving record, and so forth.
So, should you be concerned when shopping for a car color? I say, just do you because after all your car is a reflection of your personality. Now, I guess the next question would be, Is having a wrap on your vehicle dangerous or not?
