I just asked my son, who got his license a month ago. He said, "Most people
call it 'yellow,' but the book [the Mass. RMV driver's manual] calls it

That matches with my sense (also Massachusetts: I live in Framingham, about
30min west of Boston). Everybody calls it "yellow", but officially it's
"amber". Kind of like the Feds' being the only people in America who spell
"mari<j>uana" with an 'h'.
