A mess, right? Well, that was exactly the scene in the early 19oos. Cars had just become available to the public, and the roads were filled with them, plus horse-drawn - carriages and bicycles. Driving through such crowded roads was difficult, especially at intersections. Although police officers might direct traffic at really busy intersections, most drivers were left to fend for themselves, often causing act~idents. One day, inventor Garrett Morgan saw a bad accident at an intersection and decided to invent something that would make intersections less dangerous. -*-- Morgan thought about the problem and came up with a hand-crankedT-shaped pole light that would control the flow of traffic at intersections. The light had three positions: stop, go and an all-traffic stop so pedestrians could cross the street safely. Morgan's invention was a success and used everywhere until automatic traffic lights were invented. ! 0 J si The CATAUNA ISLANDER Friday, February 11, 2011 i 11
