🚦Meaning and Description

🚦 is an emoji that represents a vertical traffic light, which is a device that controls the flow of vehicles and pedestrians at intersections. The emoji shows three circular lights in a column, with the colors red🔴, yellow🟡, and green🟢 from top to bottom. The red light means stop, the yellow light means caution, and the green light means go.

The history of traffic lights dates back to the 19th century, when the first gas-lit traffic signals were installed in London. The first electric traffic light was introduced in 1912 in Salt Lake City, Utah, with red and green lights. The yellow light, symbolizing caution, was added later to provide a transition between the "stop" and "go" phases.
