Many motorists can tell what other drivers are like just from the colour of their car, it’s been claimed.
More than half of motorists (51%) give red cars a wide berth when passing them as they think their owners could be speedy and dangerous, a survey from fish4cars found.
Two in five think drivers of white cars are introverted yet safe, while 86% reckon men who drive pink cars a pushover.
Blue was most popular
Based on responses from 1,063 adults, the survey found that blue was the most popular car for drivers choosing a car, followed by red, black, green, white and yellow.
Colour expert Donna Blackman said: ‘It is the spiritual, calm and gentle Brits that are attracted to blue cars; definitely the kind of people who stick to the outside lane.
‘Speedy, masculine and outrageous types always opt for the colour red, while mysterious types who don’t have a strong sense of identity often end up choosing a black car.’
