What is the origin of red meaning stop and green meaning go?

The color red denotes 'danger'. The color green for 'go' was originally to be white. Unfortunately, when a red lens fell out of its housing, the remaining white color indicated the way was clear, the train proceeded and it resulted in a crash.
You probably count the exclamation mark (Emma) as a dear friend in your writing, but how well do you really know her? Do you know where she comes from or all the things she gets up to? Now might just be the time to stop and find out.
