Are some vehicle colors more dangerous than others?

On Behalf of | Jan 17, 2019 | Car Accidents

It doesn’t seem possible, but many analysts suspect that certain vehicle colors are more prone to getting into accidents than others. There is a lot of disagreement about this issue, and some say that the difference in safety is negligible, but it might be worth your attention to learn about colors most commonly believed to be more dangerous for automobiles.

Here are the three vehicle colors that certain safety analysts feel are risky:

Black vehicles

Black is mysterious and sleek-looking, but many believe it’s not as safe as others. It holds the ranking as “the most dangerous car” because it’s involved in more accidents than other vehicles. Is this because the color is popular with teens and younger drivers? Or, is it because these cars are less visible at night?

Blue vehicle

Many motorists love the color blue, but some say that blue and silver cars have a higher chance of a break-in. Even worse, it’s believed that blue is harder to see, and therefore, it’s not as visible as other vehicles.

Red vehicles

Everybody loves a bright red sports car, but like the color blue, many say that this color is hard to spot on the road as well.
