    Google Doodle Official website, "Doodler Nate Swinehart hearkens back to an earlier time with shades of black and white, and uses the background colors to make the red and green signals particularly luminous. It's not an artistic coincidence that the cars leap forward and screech wildly to a halt, either - the yellow light wouldn't appear for several years, and overzealous motorists had to stop on a dime."
