Zebra Crossing 1951
The zebra crossing was first installed in Slough, Berkshire England on the 31st October 1951. Authorities were looking for a way to make pedestrian crossings more visible to road users and the public. The idea of painting broad white stripes was put forward by the Transport and Road Research Laboratory and eventually approved. MP James Callaghan commented that the design resembled zebra markings and the terminology stuck.
