    Any opinions on yellow driveway stakes. I normally use orange but found a good deal on some yellow stakes. I'm not sure if they'll be as visible in the day time. They both have reflective tape on top so nighttime visibility should be the same. Anyone prefer yellow and why

    All I know is that if I'm very dehydrated, my orange pee is a lot more visible in the snow than my normal yellow pee.

    I prefer orange over yellow. It stands out better against the snow. At night the reflective markings on both will give the same effect. Really it comes down to what you like and if you can see the yellow good enough.

    I 2nd or 3rd for the orange. Heck, I even upgraded to the orange thick fisher contractor plow markers!

    i use orange with no reflective tape where they tend to disappear from certain places and i bought blue with reflective tape to be a little different was the same price for any color at that time plus blue matches my truck color

    I use blue with reflective tape because no one else does in my area. For the areas where kids and adults steal them I put vasoline on the top 2 feet. They don't get stolen. It works! I just have to remember to grab them low in the spring.
