Eric Stonestreet, aka Cam on Modern Family, tweeted just this morning:
Can’t take your road rage seriously, mr. yellow car driver man.
He left the details to our imagination — dangerous in and of itself — but he brings up an interesting point:
Do we assign character traits to drivers based on the color of their cars?
Studies show that red cars get more tickets, so apparently police officers believe these drivers are inherently up to no good. They watch them closer, and the tickets follow.
But what of the other car colors?
Eric didn’t take the enraged driver seriously because his car was yellow. I have personally shook my head in wonder at bright orange vehicles — not that I don’t love the color in my salty snacks and diet soda and an occasional saucy top or two —
But to drive it down the street every day? Even I have some dignity.
What car colors do you consider taboo? Share in the comments section and perhaps save a reader from making an expensive mistake at the dealership.
This. Very. Day.
