Red Cars/Trucks Are For The Birds – Literally!

The old storyline is that red cars get more tickets from the police and you pay more for insurance on a red car. A little research finds that neither of these assumptions are true.

However, according to a new study, there is one REALLY good reason to chose a color other than red. The study shows that red cars attract more bird poop than other vehicles.

Researchers tracked what vehicles had been bombarded with aerial droppings in five major cities. Red was first with 18%, followed by blue (14%), black (11%), white (7%) grey (3%) and green (1%).

Whatever the reason for the birds, it’s something to consider when choosing a car color. It’s also something you might want to consider when choosing your wardrobe for the summer.
