How to Choose a Traffic Cone

Traffic Cones have been around for 80 years. With original designs made of used rubber tire skins sewn together, the first patented traffic cone was invented by a Los Angeles street painter named Charles P Scanlon in 1940 to keep motorists from driving on wet paint. Today, the amount of options offered when choosing a cone can be overwhelming. Below are some basic guidelines to help you select the cone that is right for your project.
