- Here's a Bright Idea.
A New Zealand study concluded that brightly colored cars are about twice as safe

brown or black. Silver cars
were the safest -- they were estimated to be half as likely as white cars to have an accident.
- Electronic Stability Control.
These "ESC" systems can prevent rollovers and spin-outs. They reduce traffic fatalities by 15%
for most cars, and 25% for SUVs. They're now standard on about half of
all models, and will be required on all new vehicles by 2012. They shouldn't
be confused with much less effective traction control systems.

in auto safety takes up just
