How to choose the colour of your car – injury lawyers Walkden
Most people will choose the colour of their car last, as the least important element of buying a car. When they do come to choose the colour, they will often choose a colour which simply looks good to them, or is their favourite colour. However, the colour that you choose can both keep you safer on the road, and also affect the psychological impact of the car.
People will make certain unconscious associations about a person based on the colour and style of their car. So whatever you are trying to put across with your vehicle, the colour can be important, and it can keep you safer.
- Research the safest colours. Many people think that a bright colour such as red will keep them safer on the road as it is more likely to be seen. This is true during the day, but red doesn’t actually show up much better than a darker colour when in the dark, and red cars are more likely to be pulled over by the police. White and silver cars are actually the safest for driving at night. Silver cars are 50% less likely to be involved in an accident than other cars.
- Decide on the emotional impact you want your car to make to others. People respond emotionally to colours without thinking, and the colour of your car can affect how other road users see you. Those driving green cars are thought to be more intelligent and thus safer, whilst red car drivers are thought to be risk takers, which can get them into trouble on the road. Black projects an image of wealth, which can put across the right image to work acquaintances, but may also put you at risk of thieves.
- Find out which colours are popular. If you stick to a classic colour instead of what is currently popular, you may be able to avoid car theft, as thieves will usually be looking for something which will sell easily.
