This has its ups and downs. You are also more likely to receive a ticket

Fuel.. proven fact is that white is tougher to see or something.

Glad about the deer. Although..I will tell you. I also was told by my parents living in the middle of no where that I should be careful about wildlife. It never happened...never happened and all of a sudden one day there were 4 deer that decided on a last second run across the road. ABS saved their lives. Little while later there was a bear. The bumper did rub him a little...didn't seem to hurt him though (odd..I never did 25 through there except that night) he got lucky it was icy and I was driving slow.

Moral of the story. While we as individuals like to think we control something, the truth is... we can't control much.

Yeah Billy, you're right, but it'* fun to come up with a theory for everything. After all, the Romans did that. You're lucky you have ABS, I lost mine, the module is fried. ****. So I'm driving a 1999, prolly the only one in town with a 99 car without ABS. The module is very expensive to replace. So I'm looking into stealing one off a unsuspecting 99 Bville. There'* few close by heheheheh

Going to blow your white theory all to hell...it was in my GOLD bonnie that I hit a deer doing 60 mph. $9500 latter my GOLD bonnie was back on the road. My current WHITE bonnie has never seen an accident or close call. Maybe if you dig into statistics you'll find that more cars per capita are white vs another colour, and statisically speaking the chances of them in mishaps rises only due to the frequency of white coloured cars on the road vs other colours. This topic is useless........can't you find more interesting things to discuss rather than "white cursed coloured cars"!!! Police cars in Canada are mostly white for safety reasons, one being that they are more visible on the highways at night time than dark coloured vehicles. I think if you really want to get serious about this silly topic you should have your facts and figures supported by true studies and statistics. Show me the proof!!!!! LOL!!!!

i hate when people with grey/dark grey/black cars drive around with their headlights off at dusk...i almost did not see one earlier today for that very reason, they were in the oncoming lane and i almost pulled out to pass a car...i flashed my brights at them about 15 times in 2 seconds as if to say "turn your $%&$*%$& lights on!" but they looked at me funny and still didnt turn them on....which is why im glad DRLs are in existence.
