When was the traffic light invented…

5 Aug

If it wasn’t for the internet, and Google in particular I would have no idea that the traffic light system was invented 101 years ago today.

Honestly, I wouldn’t have even wondered.

But the “Google logo” is a traffic light today…so I figured today must be the anniversary of it’s invention.

1914-8-5

So, I clicked on the link and learned that the first traffic signal system was started in America on August 5th, 1914. Exactly 101 years ago today.

Thanks Google. Learn something everyday.
