It's the bane of every car owner. You park outside and come back to bird poop -- on the roof, on the bonnet, on the windows. Ew!
And it's not just disgusting; bird droppings quickly soften the clear coat on the paint finish, which leaches out the color. What's left? A permanently faded spot. So which color car gets bird-bombed the most? Red!
That's the word from a British survey of 1,140 cars parked in five U.K. cities -- Brighton, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and Bristol. Over a two-day period, researchers inspected the cars, recording car color and the frequency with which birds left their droppings, reports The Independent.
Car colors that were hit with bird poo:
1. Red: 18%
2. Blue: 14%
3. Black: 11%
4. White: 7%
5. Gray or silver: 3%
6. Green: 1%
