A DIF­FER­ENT SIDE TO YEL­LOW AND GREY

Go! Camp & Drive - - Letters - ALEXAN­DER S. LAM­BERT Jo­han­nes­burg

I re­fer to the ar­ti­cle about ve­hi­cle colours in the De­cem­ber 2017 is­sue and would like to add the fol­low­ing: Yel­low ve­hi­cles: I drove sev­eral yel­low cars when do­ing high mileages to many min­ing op­er­a­tions. I thought it was a safer colour but re­alised the op­po­site in Bed­ford­view. Of­fi­cials changed their emer­gency ve­hi­cles’ colour to yel­low but then re­alised that you can’t see them at night un­der sodium and mer­cury light­ing. Sil­ver/Grey ve­hi­cles: When driv­ing in mist, fog, smoke or rain, every­thing around you goes grey, so sil­ver/grey cars be­come dif­fi­cult to see. It helps to switch on your head­lights.
