Do black cars get in more accidents at night?

No, the color of the vehicle makes no difference.

Not if they have upswept white bumpers with white reflectors around the lights.

I used to find grey cars hard to see at twilight if they hadn't put lights on, but DRLs have sorted that by blinding you the rest of the day.

No. Cars use lights at night. Many dark coloured cars appear black at night.

All cars appear "black" at night, if they don't have their headlights on. But, hopefully at night, every driver has his headlights on so you can "see" them, regardless of the color of the car. Most people can't tell what "color" a car is at night - they see only the car's headlights.

No. If they did, you can bet every insurance company would have a black paint surcharge.

All cars are black when it's dark. As long as the lights are functioning it's no more prone to being in an accident than any other color at night.

That’s a racist question

highly unlikely because after dark, most cars look the same, because there is little natural or artificial light to help see them and all have basically the same exterior lights.

Yes, my brother crashed a black car two months ago because he couldn't see it at night. 100% legit.
