    Study finds relation between car color and traffic accidents (2020/09/15)

    Is the color of a car related to traffic accident rates? According to a recently published study, the answer is yes. The study found that among all traffic accidents in Taipei City from 2016 to 2017, yellow cars were involved in the most accidents, followed by black cars. Researchers said yellow cars are at the top of the list because most are taxis often on the road. Black cars are accident magnets because of their low visibility.

    A professor from the Central Police University Department of Traffic Science analyzed Taipei City crash data from 2016 to 2017. He found that yellow cars accounted for the highest proportion of car accidents, at 22.47%. Black cars came in second, at 20.04%, followed by white cars at 16.39%. Rounding out the Top 5 are silver and gray cars, in that order.

    Among the total number of traffic accidents, we found that yellow cars accounted for a relatively high percentage of accidents in Taipei City.

    The researcher also analyzed why certain colors are more dangerous. Most yellow cars are taxis, which are on the road every day and often change lanes to pick up passengers. As for black cars or other dark vehicles, they are less visible on the road, so are especially prone to accidents on rainy days or at night. While white cars are highly visible, it's also one of the most popular colors, so there are simply more of them on the road.

    At this garage, a mechanic is fixing up a black car. Another car in the shop for repairs is also of a dark color.

    Black probably accounts for 40 to 60% of the cars we repair in this garage. If a black car is driving at midnight, of course there will be a difference in its visibility.

    Silver, white, black and gray are among Taiwan's favorite vehicle colors. With more cars of these colors on the road, the number of traffic accidents for them may be higher as well, researchers said.

    研究統計 最常出車禍車子顏色冠軍是黃色


    車子的顏色,跟發生車禍的機率有關嗎?國內最新研究,統計最常車禍的前五種顏色,冠軍是黃色,研判是因為大量計程車每天在路上行駛,不只時間長,而且頻繁變換車道等因素有關,第二名則是黑色。

    中央警察大學交通系教授用台北市資料分析,結果「黃色」車禍比例最高、達22.47%;黑色第二名、比例20.04%。屬於主流色系的的白色第3,大約16.39%,銀色、灰色也在前五。

    "我們從事故件數部分,發現台北市轄區,黃色車輛所占的事故件數比例,是相對較高。"

    分析事故最大原因,計程車因為天天在路上跑,而且攬客,經常變換車道。另外黑色跟暗色系車輛,車體不顯眼,雨天或深夜,都容易發生事故。雖然白色顯色,但是是主流購買車系,所以比例,也偏高。

    來到修車廠,汽修師傅保養修車,這一台就是黑色車,另外一台要檢查的,也是暗色系。

    [[汽修廠業者 張榮和]]
    "以我們這邊(維修)大概黑色佔了4到6成。黑色車在半夜行駛,當然它的明顯度就有差異。"

    銀、白、黑、灰是台灣人最愛購買汽車顏色前5名,車輛數較多,可能事故件數也可能較高。
