Lighting systems provided security on the streets all over the world. Today we do not imagine how the traffic works without rules and traffic lights. Long time before cars became daily routine they people try to regulate the traffic. This became the first result in 1868. In London had started the first signal system that operated on gas. This attempt failed because the signal system exploded. After an unsuccessful attempt to regulate the flow of traffic, they are working on further creative solutions.
