The True Safety of #YellowCabs

yellowcabIf your only reference for yellow cabs is from the scene in “Elf“, you may think the yellow ones don’t stop. But according to this study, perhaps it was the brainchild of the yellow cab commission? Only looking at color of taxis, the study found that yellow taxis are more visible in traffic and the vehicles have a lower incidence of accidents. Dark colored cabs, ride-sharing vehicles, and any other ‘non yellow’ modes of transportation just blend like camouflage in the concrete jungle. Don’t be a statistic. Judge your taxis on their color. Feels wrong to say that but the study says it’s the truth.  If safety is the deciding factor for you, there’s always the bus or flying. What if this whole study is just sitting on a throne of lies?
