At first, I was all for a unified color scheme because it does distinguish a city taxi from a gypsy cab, some other non-official cab like Uber, or an Arlington Red Top that happens to be dropping someone off in DC (but can't pick up anyone, so don't bother trying to hail it).

But, if we're going to go with some complicated color scheme that will be expensive for operators and an onerous regulation, let's just drop the idea. I say go with a simple solid yellow color or no standard at all. Many other cities have solid yellow taxis and no one confuses them for NYC. Usually there are a lot of other indicators that tell you what city you're in. ;)

I also feel like a "yellow cab" has a universal understood meaning that is useful for out-of-towners.
