There is a crossing near my home which I offen cross it, the cars give ways to people as there is no traffic light.

I can see none of them from where I live, but there is a bus stop near my home and corners are all around.

Most people in my city do not respect the traffic lights and crossing.

My apartment is near the road which is very busy in peak hours everyday. there is a crossroad on one side and a roundabout no the other side. furthermore, a bus stop is only a few minuets walk from my flat, which is very convenient.

Right now, I'm living a hostile in my university. So, I can't see traffic lights, sign posts, crossroads, crossing and etc but I see street lights in a side the streets in the university.

In our country, there are more traffic lights than roundabouts. And then, we can see street lights in the middle of the roads or on sides of the streets.

Near my home, there is a crossroad. After a few meters, There are crossing, signposts, bus stops, traffic, etc. The pavements in the city I live arent wide enough.

I'm living in a village,so,no traffic lights there or roundabouts,there is just crossroads and crossings.

when I get out of my house the first thing I see is the pavement, after few meters I reached crossroads which have traffic lights and signposts.

I'm leaving in a busy city which has a terrible traffic. Although there are traffic lights at corner, people here don't follow. Some people always try to drive as fast as they can when the traffic lights turning yellow, even though when it turns red. It seems more terrible than at crossroads with not clearly signposts. Especially, It's truly a chaotic traffic at the rush hour. On pavements, citizens use for their personal purpose such as parking, selling food, no where for walking. Almost people have to walk on the roads. I wish the government finds out efficiently solutions to solve this problem soon.
