While we're talking about Tate and Lyle and vehicles in particular....... Tate and Lyle lorries were selected to be the test-bed for the new style yellow and white reflective number plates in 1968(?). Because they were generally a dark colour (were they very dark blue?). The reflecives were going to be used for heavy vehicles opriginally so I was lead to believe but their safety features were deemed to be good enough to have yellow and black an option for all vehicles until made compulsory some time after. There....., thank Tate and Lyle!
