When you're on those long road trips your mind starts to wander. You look at funny-shaped clouds and try to make out pictures, you peer into other people's cars and start to think about things that wouldn't pop into your head if you weren't dying of boredom.

Have you ever driven around North Dakota, passing car after car, and wondered which color is the most popular? I have, and here's what I found.

Least Popular

In general, the least popular color car in the country is Yellow, according to a study done by ISeeCars.com. I would've thought the least popular would be a color like Purple, but nope. Yellow is not the fan favorite.

Most Popular

According to Kelley Blue Book, the most popular car color in the country is Silver.

North Dakota

North Dakota ranks at number 9 for states with the most colorful cars, according to the source. That said, the most popular color car in North Dakota is somewhat predictable. North Dakotans are all about White cars. White is the most popular color car in the state.


Car Color Urban Legends

We've all heard that certain color cars might get you more speeding tickets or that might make your insurance rates higher; I looked it up and found there is quite a bit of truth there.


Car Colors Most Likely To Get You A Speeding Ticket

The car color that gets the most speeding tickets is White. This, mainly because they make up the biggest percentage of cars on the road.

And if you're wondering about the Red car folklore where people say if you drive a Red car, you're more likely to be targeted for traffic stops, well, there is truth to that. According to HotCars.com, in 2022, Red comes in at number 2 for most likely colors to get ticketed.

All of this said, if you don't want a speeding ticket, you could...Ehermm.... Not speed.

Car Color More Likely For Accidents & Crashes

Black was found to be the color with the most accidents, according to CityWide Law Group. The source says this has a lot to do with visibility, and that you are 47% more likely to get in a crash if you drive a black vehicle. It also stated that Grey and Silver cars come in at a close second.

Least Likely Car Color For Crashes

White was found to be the color with the least amount of crashes. AutoList.com says if you're all about safety, you should opt for a brightly colored car.

Fun Fact: According to copilotsearch.com, Green cars get lower resale values.
