I can see traffic lights and crossing and also a bus stop

Near my home I can see street lights because I'm living in a private urbanization in the countryside. In this place there aren't roads, traffic or crossroads. It's fantastic!

Unfortunately, I can see none of these near my house.

There are a bus stop near my house; also there is a road and a crossroad.

From my window, despite this rainy weather that make the day spooky and grim, I can see the road, which looks like a two-way alley,
There are two street-lights in front of my house. They usually are turned on around 6pm.
A lot of cables hang between my house and my neighbor's house, and some of them come across the road.

Of course, the road

I live at a dormitory area, but I also see a lot of these things. Near my house there is a crossing through that I go to a bus stop. The bus stop is near from the cross roads and the traffic on this cross roads is regulated by traffic lights. Of course, there are a few roads around my house, but they are not popular. As for street lights, there are a few of them at my yard, butI don't know anything about theis work.

My house is located at the middle of city and I see all of these every day! I walk to my work every morning and I have to cross the street from crossing. Then I arrive to a roundabout and a crossroads, where there is a traffic light and many signposts there. Then I go straight ahead in the pavement to main street. I don't use from the personal car because it is traffic always in the mornings. I prefer to walk or wait for a bus in bus stop.

My house is in the countryside, so there is not much those things. But the palce where I'm living in, is opposite. There are many crossroads with traffic lights and crossings. Roads are always crowded. Street lights bright all streets.

We live on a small island in Thailand.We have small roads around us. There are no crossing and traffic lights here. And a lot of street lights are along the roads.
