Black, red, orange or blue? Read on to discover the car color deemed safest.
Tests at the University of California concluded that either blue or yellow is the best color for car safety. Blue shows up best during daylight and fog; yellow is best at night. The worst color from the visibility standpoint is gray.
In another study by Mercedes-Benz in Germany, white ranked the highest in all-around visibility, except in situations of completely snow-covered roads or white sand. In such extremes, bright yellow and bright orange ranked second and third, respectively, in visibility. The least visible car color in the Mercedes-Benz test was dark green.
