in my city, I can see a lot of roads, crossroads with signposts for people in my city find it easy to go when they don't know, the traffic lights are always lighted up to ensure everybody's safety in the city, in the evening street lights will be lighted up to light the roads, they also are located on the corners of the city. It has a lots roundabouts to turn into the different roads to get home or work quickly, like that. In my city, the traffic is so heavy, especially in rush hours, so it makes some difficulties for many people cross the roads. In the morning, if you get my city, you can see many people walk along the pavements for doing exercises. By the way, because of the traffic jams so lots of the police officer always stand at the traffic lights, crossroads to guide and direct the vehicles and transports. I have never seen any square in my city where I am living but I will find out more and will have a visit it in the future ><

My building is very close to a crossroads in city, as my neighbourd's building is right on the corner street. On each four pavement streets of this crossroads there is a traffic lights and also crossings on roads for each traffic lights. There are also as the same place some signposts with different colors on the background: in green are mentionned others cities direction to follow, and in white nearest places in the city. All long of each street there are street lights brighting the town at night.

close my home, there is a crossroad where there is not a traffic light so that point on the street is so dangerous for people.

In my city, there are no roundabouts. Actually, I have never seen them in my country. So I defenitely will be confused how to drive if I go into them.

I can see near my house several things related of traffic. Three blocks from my house, there is a traffic lights on the crossroads. Around my house there are many roads, corners and street lights. In an avenue close my house, there are various signposts. I don't remember where is the crossing closest. There is a square behind my house too.

I live at Quezon city in the Philippines. when I go out, I can see a lot of traffic lights at crossroads. during the day, it is really hard to travel because you can get traffic all the time. It is better to go by metro. Sometimes, I can see they plan the beautiful flower at roundabout, it make city look nice. I like to take a walk and the drivers are so polite to stop in front of crossing so I can cross easily.

Actually, all of the things mentioned above are exist in my town. Inside the town there are more roundabouts than crossroads, thus facilitate the traffic.

I can see traffic lights and crossing neat the station.

Pavement is really necessary for road in the city center. It's safe for people. Street without pavement should be encourage in the rural or high way to save budget, I think.

In my city, there are roundabouts and crossroads, there is not a pavement to walk above in some areas.
