"N.Y.C. DOT put up the first automated traffic light here in 1916!!!"

So claims this handwritten sign taped to a pedestrian signal pole at the intersection of Huguenot Avenue and Amboy Road in Staten Island. I'm not sure exactly what this is supposed to mean, and I can't find anything online to clarify the matter.

    I tried to google it and came up with this per

    “New York City installed the first three-color light signals in 1918.”
