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

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
