What Is the Safest Color Car to Drive?

White and silver cars are the safest to drive on the road. White is the most visible during the day and night and its contrast to the color of the road adds to its visibility, while silver is a color that doesn’t appear much in nature.

In a study by the Monash University Accident Research Centre, white cars were shown to be 10 percent less likely to be in a crash during daylight hours. White cars are not as safe on cloudy days or against snow because of reduced visibility. Brown cars have been shown to have the highest risk of injury to the driver. Dark red cars have some of the lowest visibility, mainly because people can’t see red very well in their peripheral vision.
