MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why are some fire trucks neon yellow?

Most fire trucks you see are red. But every once in a while you see one of those neon yellow/lime green fire trucks. Why that color?

They actually did a study that showed that specific color of yellow/green is the least likely paint job on a vehicle to get hit by another vehicle. Which is super interesting! It also explains why a lot of safety vests and construction zone signs are that color too.
