why danger signals are red?

Expert Answer:

Dear student
A/c to Rayleigh's scattering, the scattering is inversely proportional to the fourth power of the wavelength. Now, the red light has maximum wavelength, so it is least scattered by fog or smoke. Therefore,
it can be seen in the same colour at a distance. Hence danger signals are in red.
Hope this clarifies your doubt.
