Paris to (finally) get a unique colour for its taxi fleet

London has its distinctive black taxi cab's, New York its bright yellow checker taxi's. Now Paris will get a unique colour for its fleet of 17 000 taxis. Up until now Paris taxis have resisted the idea of a unique, distinctive colour, why? But in face of competition from chauffeur driven cars that will change. Blue is presumably taken by the Taxis Bleue, yellow by Voitures Jaunes... What colour will it be?
