The first traffic light was invented before the first car.

Traffic Light

The first traffic light was used in 1868 whereas the modern automobile was invented in 1886. It wasn’t electric, though, but a gas lamp that was used to keep carriages from bumping into each other. Unfortunately, it exploded a month after and so it was abandoned and was not used again until 1912, when it was already electric.
