Heigh-Ho! Silver Cars Are Safer

By Ed Edelson
HealthDay Reporter

THURSDAY, Dec. 18 (HealthDayNews) -- The color of your car might
affect your chance of being injured in a road accident, New Zealand
researchers report.

Silver cars are less likely to be involved in a crash than autos of
other colors, says a report by epidemiologists at the University of
Auckland. Their analysis of statistics from a two-year study of auto
accidents in Auckland also finds "a significant increased risk of a
serious injury" in brown vehicles and a slightly increased risk for
black and green cars.

The report comes in a traditionally semi-serious Christmas issue of
the British Medical Journal that is devoted to studies determinedly
off the beaten track. For example, another study is an analysis of how
elderly and disabled pedestrians are depicted on road traffic signs in
119 countries.
