- Traffic lights were invented by William L Potts, of Detroit, Michigan, who was a police officer. He based it on lights for trains. Traffic lights were used to try and deal with the ever increasing number of cars on the road and the congestion that they were creating. The first traffic light was installed in Detroit in 1920. Within a year Detroit had installed 15 traffic lights and his invention soon took off around the world.

Some wrapped up well, some playing it cool.
Time to chat behind big van.
On your marks, gets set. Go.
