People like horn and don't let people go in the crossing.

I can see street light, crossing, bus stop, traffic lights, and signpost near my home.

I see signpost, crossing, roundabout and all these things.

I live in a small village. There are some roundabouts. It has two traffic lights near to the school, a little square town and some small roads. You can't lose because somes sight post show the right adress.

At my home there is lots of roundabouts

When I saw the picture where is a pavement, I thought that is a roadside. However, I learned a new word about traffic.

In Hanoi, Traffic jam is a big problem. Although pavement is only for walking and riding bicycle, you still see a lot of people drive motobike here in rush hours.
you must have a lot of courage when you walk on the pavement of main road in rush hour :)

In my city,people are not used to respect the passers-by. Therefore, crossing are just designed to decorate the roads. Traffics lights don't work correctly and People drive as they want. They don't respect each another and this usually causes traffic-jams.

the city where I live there are many traffic lights and speed cameras.
There are crossings and crossroads . The street lights in Valiasr Street at nights are very beautiful and they are wide pavements for people to walking .
Near my home there is a roundabout and around the circle there are four traffic lights.

I live in a house in the middle of a straight street. There are street lights and pavement (of course), and a way near the road for bicycle riders. I can also see a crossroads.
