Datebook: December 10 - First Traffic Light Installed 144 Years Ago

Dec 10, 2012

It's a universally complex relationship... everyone hates traffic lights, but we're sure glad when they're working. The first lights, outside the British Houses of Parliament in London, looked like semaphore arms with red and green gas lamps, turned with a lever by a policeman.

It’s Monday, December 10
