This from Wiki ;
On 5 August 1914, the American Traffic Signal Company installed a traffic signal system on the corner of East 105th Street and Euclid Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio. It had two colors, red and green, and a buzzer, based on the design of James Hoge, to provide a warning for color changes.
The design by James Hoge allowed police and fire stations to control the signals in case of emergency.
The first three-color traffic light was created by police officer William Potts in Detroit, Michigan in 1920.
In 1922, T.E. Hayes patented his "Combination traffic guide and traffic regulating signal" (Patent # 1447659).
