A new study conducted by a Zurich insurance company gives new meaning to the benefits of owning a green car. In a survey that examined the color of vehicles to frequency of bird droppings, results showed that owners of green cars were less likely to find bird poo stains (86%) compared to owners of silver cars (92%).
While those numbers may seem relatively trivial, consider this: the overall costs of repairing the damage caused by bird droppings is nearly £57 million/a year.

The study also found that only twenty percent of drivers remove "bird lime" immediately, while a third choose to wait until their next car wash.
