A DIFFERENT SIDE TO YELLOW AND GREY
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.
