Research Reveals How Much More Likely You Are To Have An Accident By Driving A Dark Color Car

According to a report by Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC), dark colors such as black, gray and blue, have a higher percentage of car crash during nighttime due to their ‘low visibility’.

The study examined the police reported crash data from 855,258 crashes that happened in Australia between 1987-2004. The data were taken from Victoria and Western Australia because these are the only two states that include vehicle color in their crash reports.

So, what does all these data say? (the article continues after the ad)

Well, the safest cars are white cars and the riskier are black cars. In fact, when driving a black car at night, you are 47% percent more likely to get into a car accident than driving a white car! The most dangerous time for a car crach is at dawn or dusk.

So, for those safety-conscious vehicle purchasers trying to minimise their risk of being involved in vehicle crashes, buy white vehicles. Coloir-wise, the most comprehensive analysis of vehicle crash data and vehicle color has not been able to find any color safer than white.
