A lot of Connecticut schools go back to school next week and the week after. Which means you’ll start seeing all those yellow buses on the streets again in the morning and afternoon. Of all the colors why did they choose yellow for school buses?
The reason has to do with safety on the roads. It is because yellow is the one color that your peripheral vision sees at least 1.24 times faster than any other color. Red is the second fastest, but I’ve never seen a red school bus.
