Traffic Light

09 Sep

The automatic traffic light was one of the greatest inventions I know of that helps everyone 365 days a year and 24 hours a day.

Imagine a day in the 21st century without a Traffic light.  You are traveling down route 24 and you are coming to a 4 way intersection.  You are a mile away from the intersection and there are no cars in view.  You are  traveling at 55 mph and  have reached the intersection. You look to the right and there is a car crossing at the same time. Crash!!!!  Both cars are totaled and you and the other driver are off to the hospital with life threatening injuries.  Wow!  The invention of the Traffic Light  has helped prevent accidents like I just described.

Garrett A Morgan created the first automatic Traffic Light. Yes he is an African American Inventor. In 1923 he acquired a patent for his invention.

Garrett A Morgan also opened his own sewing equipment and repair shop in 1907. In 1909 he added a tailor shop in which he had several employees.  In 1920 Garrett Morgan established a newspaper business The Cleveland Call.  He even invented the  GAS MASK!!  Awesome, his invention saved lives.
