Headlight bulb

Yellow headlights were introduced in France long before World War II, so that local troops could easily tell the difference between their own people's cars and those of the enemy.

Apparently, no one thought that those little yellow dots in the distance would be very accurate targets for the enemy.

Despite this failure, the French stubbornly maintained this traffic measure even after the war. Officially because the yellow light was less blinding to oncoming traffic than the white light, but at the same time less intense and therefore less illuminating under normal night conditions.
