Charles D. Scanlon inven
ted the traffic cones. He was a painter. Earlier the wooden tripods or barriers were used as a sign for indicating the construction. Scanlon found those signs insufficient and dangerous for the passing by traffic, which can easily cause accidents and damage. So, he come up with an idea of road cones.
Later on, they were approved and used at roads and different sites as an indication. In the beginning they were made up of concrete but with a passage of time the modification occurs and now they are made up of the rubber or thermoplastic.
The plastic bottles are recycled and these cones can be built with that material. It’s not necessary that all road cones have cone shape.
