D.C. cabs could soon be, finally, getting a uniform color. This morning, the “One Color Panel,” set up to consider the cab color, recommended that the color scheme should be red.

That should be a relief to opponents of the original proposed multi-color schemes, which were unpopular because they were very ugly. Also likely to be happy about the decision: several D.C. Councilmembers who also wanted a single color.

Next up for the fiery paint job: approval by the entire cab commission.

Did your color get shafted? Still a fan of the Brazilian flag design? Have your say in the comments.
