Summary
Ready, Steady, Go! This day highlights the importance of Traffic Lights.

The American Traffic Signal Company installed a traffic signal system on 5 August 1914. It was mounted on the corner of East 105th Street and Euclid Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio.

  • Did you know? There’s a set of traffic lights in Dresden, Germany that has remained red since its installation 30 years ago.
  • Did you know? The world's first traffic light was a manually operated gas-lit signal installed in London in December 1868. It exploded less than a month after it was implemented, injuring its policeman operator.
