A D.C. Taxicab Commission committee tasked with exploring a number of uniform color schemes for the city’s 6,500 taxicabs recommended today that red be adopted as the color that all cabs will eventually have to be painted….”Red is a color that is strongly associated with the District, by both residents and visitors. The stars and bars on the District’s flag are red. Each of the major sports franchises in the District uses a shade of red as a prominent part of its uniforms. In the area of transportation, both the District’s Circulator and Capital Bikeshare vehicles are red,” said Commissioner Stanley W. Tapscott, who sat on the committee reviewing the proposals and weighing the public’s response.

To encourage electric driving, the [Netherlands] is developing a rapidly expanding national grid of charging stations in cities and along highways; and Amsterdam offers owners of electric vehicles free street parking and charging. With hefty tax breaks, promotional leases and cheaper operating costs, the vehicles offer driving costs no more than those of conventional cars, some analysts say.

I’m a big fan of Sweet Green. High quality food, delicious vegan choices, a clear environmental ethos, and (at Glover Park at least), cool drink dispensers.
