Safe Car Colors That Lower Collision Risk in Lynnwood

safe car colors lynnwoodHere is an additional safety feature that might prevent a fender bender in Lynnwood: safe car colors! Yes, your car’s auto paint may actually mitigate the odds of a collision. A matter of taste could possibly be a matter of safety and security. Keep this in mind when you’re in the market for a new vehicle.

Not As Safe

Visibility – others being able to see you – is an overlooked safety objective.  Research indicates that certain car colors are involved in more collisions than others. Black vehicles are 12% more likely to be involved in an accident during day hours, and a whopping 47% at night. 

As a general rule, dark colors blend in. Deeper shades of blue, red, green, purple, and brown are harder to see on the road, especially at night and in wet conditions.

How does gray stack up?  While gray vehicles reflect light and can be highly visible in daylight, they aren’t so good at dusk or in heavy fog.

Safer Car Colors

It stands to reason that white is highly visible in all conditions, and across day and night. Tan and beige cars are likely to stand out more, too. But if you’re looking for more pop, think about bright and light shades of greens, oranges, and yellows.  In case you’re wondering, safe car colors won’t help with your insurance premium.
