Why Are Connecticut School Buses Yellow?

Have you ever wondered about this? I haven’t.

This is not some kind of joke or trick question; it’s the law. Read for yourself:

Each school bus shall be painted a uniform yellow color known as “National School Bus Glossy Yellow”, except for the fenders and trim which may be painted black and the roof which may be painted white…  Conn. Gen. Stat. Sec. 14-275(b)

That’s right Connecticut’s School Buses are “National School Bus Glossy Yellow.”
