If you’ve ever spent time in NYC you’ve no doubt seen the sea of yellow taxis. But why yellow?
Originally when they first started back in 1907 all the taxis in New York were red and green. But they quickly started to realize those colors were blending in with the other vehicles on the road. The solution was to paint them all bright yellow to make it easier for people to see when they needed a ride. Within a few years all the cars were painted that yellow we see today.
