Red cars are more likely to be hit by bird poo

If you find yourself standing near a bright red car, best move away swiftly – you could get splattered from the sky with droppings, because crimson-coloured vehicles are top of the birds’ hit list, a survey shows.

Research found 18 per cent of red cars were marked with deposits, followed by blue (14 per cent), black (11 per cent) and white (seven per cent).

For the cleanest ride, the best advice, appropriately, is to go green – just one per cent of that colour was smeared.

The report said theories abound on motoring and social networking websites as to why birds are attracted to pooping on some cars more than others. Some drivers say red signifies danger – clearly to a bowel-loosening degree.
