Canadian Inventions: Road Lines

Did you know Canada.. it was John D. Millar, an engineer working for the Ontario Department of Transport who thought up the idea of painting lines on roads in the 1930s.

The world's first lines were painted on a portion of highway near the Ontario/Quebec border and within 3 years it was the standard across North America.
