It’s scientifically proven: Black cars are 12% more involved in an accident. So, when buying a car, is it better to buy a white car?
It’s easy to think that way, but statistics don’t mean the world. Think a little bit further. Maybe there is a direct connection between the colour of the car and the amount of accidents, but maybe not.
Perhaps aggresive young drivers have a preference for black cars.
Sounds plausible right?
Well, if that’s the true reason, you can buy a black car without having to worry about an increased risk of a crash.
People are tempted to put a direct connection between statistic and reality, but you should look a little bit further.
How about the following:
At fires, there are a lot of firefighters around.
Does that mean firefighters are often pyromaniacs?
See what I’m trying to say?
Statistics aren’t everything
