The Yellow Project (Day 2)

‪#‎TheYellowProject‬ ‪#‎TYPFact2‬: Yellow is a colour that is easily visible, this is why it is commonly used to indicate caution, for example, on a set of traffic lights, yellow divides the red light and green light, meaning drivers can go, but be cautious.

In some countries, taxi’s are commonly yellow. This practice began in Chicago, where taxi entrepreneur John D. Hertz painted his taxi’s yellow based on a University of Chicago study alleging that yellow is the colour most easily seen at a distance. This idea has also been used with school buses and road warning signs.
