Southeast corner of King & Yonge Streets    1912 Vs 2019

The Canadian cities of Windsor, London and Hamilton had already adopted electric traffic lights prior to 1925 preceding Toronto. Uniformed traffic officers controlled traffic flow. Upon implementation of traffic lights the officers were slowly replaced as the public became accustomed to the new system. By 1963 Toronto became the first city in the world to achieve a computerized traffic management system.
