    β€œAmerica’s first electric traffic light made its debut at the intersection of E. 105th and Euclid in Cleveland, Ohio on August 5th, 1914. The traffic light was installed by the American Traffic Signal Company and had only red and green lights as well as a buzzer to notify drivers when the light was about to change colors. The traffic light was operated by a traffic officer in a nearby booth. The traffic officer operating the light was equipped with an emergency communications device which allowed him to be constantly in touch with police and firemen.” (SOURCE)
