What car color is safest?

A 2007 Australian study said white is safest, black cars are more likely to be involved in accidents, and silver is pretty much like black.

A 2003 British Journal of Medicine report concluded that silver cars are safest, 50% less likely to be involved in an accident.

I remember reading somewhere that green is the most dangerous car color.

"The [Batman show] producers didn’t like working with [George] Barris, [the owner of the original Batmobile] . . .."

I am sure Mr Barris has a different version of the story. Given the fickle nature of Hollywood producers, without more, I favor Mr Barris.
