TRANSPORTATION TRAIL BLAZERS
Garrett Morgan was an African American inventor. One of his most notable inventions was the three-position traffic signal. Morgan was inspired to design an automated signal with an interim "warning" position – similar to today's "yellow light" after witnessing a terrible carriage accident.

Morgan's invention was not the first traffic signal introduced to drivers; however, it was the first to have the middle "warning" position that gave drivers enough time to clear the intersection before crossing traffic entered, preventing accidents. Morgan patented his invention in 1923 in the United States, Britain, and Canada and eventually sold the rights to General Electric.
