Modern vehicles come with a number of advanced safety features designed to help reduce the number of accidents on New Jersey roads and highways. However, the color of your vehicle may be a potential safety feature that you don’t have to pay extra for.
Why car color matters
You may be aware that colors have the ability to invoke emotions such as sadness or aggression. If your car is red, others around you may become angry or hostile toward you without knowing why. You may also become more aggressive while driving your red car. You may also be more likely to be pulled over by the police in addition to being at a higher risk of being involved in a crash. Other colors that you may want to stay away from include blue and black as they can be harder to see at night. Gray and silver are also colors to avoid as they tend to blend into the surrounding environment.
White may be best for cars
White is an ideal car color choice because it won’t blend into the environment as much. Therefore, you are less likely to be hit by another vehicle or encounter a pedestrian who crosses your path because that person didn’t realize a car was coming. Although they are also bright colors, yellow and orange are relatively safe choices as they also tend to stand out from the environment.
If you are involved in a car crash, you may have the right to take legal action against another party. Depending on the facts of your case, multiple parties may be liable for paying medical bills or other costs incurred because of their irresponsible behavior. New Jersey law gives you two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit.
