Press release from Monash Uni: http://www.monash.edu.au/news/newsline/story/1190 What a lot of us have suspected for a while: Does this mean I should reduce my lust for a matte-black VTR250? And does this again raise the importance of wearing hi-visibility clothing when riding? As concluded, it's roadskills that play the biggest factor in crash risk anyway. But can't help wondering if there's a connection between colour of car purchased and the driving habits/skills of the buyer. Are high-risk people more likely to buy black cars, for example? A long shot, but just a thought.
