No, that is not bad, another nice reason to live in Canada. We just have so many un-insured drivers, and premiums are sky high. For me, I get the multi-car discount, that is all. My Cherokee isn't as expensive due to its age, but down here, age, gender, car make/model, and, yes, even color have a lot to do with what one pays in insurance, in addition to driving history. Sad but true.
So, how does public insurance work, exactly?
In answer to your question, farout, for example, a red vehicle is statistically more likely to be pulled over as opposed to silver or khaki, if, for nothing else, than it is an attention grabbing color, it stands out. Typically, let's say, in a speed zone where the speed is 35 mph and a cop has a speed checkpoint, a silver car (just for the sake of example) goes by at 50, then a red one passes at 50, the red car is twice as likely to get the ticket. There has been research conducted on this. They even put out a study on the safest car colors, which I read on Edmunds or something like that. When I find it again, I will let you know.
Don't get me wrong, I am not picking on red. One of my trucks is red, and so is my Cherokee. I was going to buy my next car in red, but for me, personally, my thought was it is time to tone down and pick something responsible, and I really didn't like the Compass in red, at least not for me.
