Been quite a few years ago but it stands out in my mind still, was in the local feed store one morning and an older like feller comes in fussin up a storm about silver or grey colored vehicles. He was saying it shouldn't be legal to paint them those colors because certain times of day they couldn't be seen. He had just had a close call involving one.

one of my friends said way back in the day, in driver training they said "The guy you blind with your headlights might be the one that kills you"... but that's not politically correct or something anymore and they don't say that

I wanted people to see me while I was driving so I went with Victory Red, since hazard orange wasn't an option. :lol:

That is much more visible than the pavement colored trucks.

Our ancestors gave us this. They fought to make it what it is. All we have to do is defend it.

I bought a new truck last year over the phone. Driving to pick it up was exciting because I never ask what color it was.
Sure glad it wasn't yellow

That grey pavement color is extremely hard to see at certain times and weather conditions , especially without lights on in a shower or road spray . The headlights thing is just ridiculous anymore , Id really like to get my hands around the throat of the guy who invented "stupid stars ".

Most seldom think from the other fellow's point of view. Sort of like children wearing dark clothing walking or
riding a bike in the twilight thinking drivers must be able to see them because they can see the cars so well.

Asphalt needs to be a different color, now I know why so many people are swerving and running off the road. Maybe every vehicle needs a strobe light like a school bus. Because adding a third brake light hasn't helped to make people pay ATTENTION and stop running into the back of other vehicles.
