The electric traffic light is inaccurate. The first electric traffic lights were installed in Cleveland, Ohio in 1914.

A bit inaccurate, there. The (steam-driven) vehicle was built in 1769, but the alleged accident was in 1771. Whether the accident actually happened is apprently disputed, though. As for the first traffic death, they`ve managed to mix up the digits, it`s meant to be 1869.

What wind is the VW Up! named after?
Or perhaps they`re starting to name them after cartoons - having run out of wind.

The Scirocco is a warm, dry, dusty wind off North Africa across the Mediterranean. They missed that one.

the first speeding fine in england was to Walter Arnold in 1896 for failing to observe the 2mph limit. The issuing constable gave chase on his bicycle.

Now when they say 8.7 million for that Bugatti, do they mean how much it would cost in monetary terms today or how much it`s actually worth today? Ralph Lauren`s Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic is currently valued around $40,000,000.

I wouldnt call that first `car` a `car` as much as its more of a trackless locomotive... being a mobile steam engine and all.

Ah yes, the grand ol` 1796 Model.

Hard to believe people were wrecking cars while Napoleon Bonaparte was conquering across France isnt it?

Oh, wait, its not hard to imagine it at all, since such a claim is clearly imaginary.
