Have you ever been in a hurry and had that annoying little device with three colorful lights impact your journey? I’m sure you have. But have you ever truly thought about its origin and, more significantly, its importance?

In 1868, the first traffic light was installed in London. A short time later, in 1914, the American Traffic Signal Company installed the world’s first electric traffic signal in Cleveland, Ohio.  It had two colors, red and green, and a buzzer, to provide a warning for color changes.
