Drive a white car? You're less likely to die in a car crash
While light-colored cars were definitely safer, they also had a lower resale value. Over the 18 years covered in the study, white cars were worth up to £500 less than darker colors. Darker colors were also much more popular than colors on the other end of the spectrum, which helps explain why lighter colors commanded less money on resale. We guess only the white 2008 Taurus is the safest car in America.
