There is lots of roundabout where I live.

In my town, there are many street lights and crossroads.In the rush hour we should stop more time in the crossroads and it is terrible for me.

Paris's road are good but their are many crossing and traffic light

In my hometown,most roads are wide and clean with street lights on both sides.There are signposts at almost every crossroads so that you would not get lost in our city.Whenver you drive a car,even at rush hour,you must give way to people on a crossing,otherwise you would get a fine.Although I have a car,sometimes it's more convenient to take a bus than to drive,because there is a bus stop at the gate of our community.

I live in the countryside, next to a forest. On the street, where I live, is a bus stop in opposite to my flat. The street has only one pavement on side of our house. A street light is also there.

In the neighborhood where I lived, roads, crossing and traffic lights were the among things that I usually encountered whenever I drive my car.

Each of them

In my city there are many traffic signs and crossroads,there are street lights at all streets,but we haven’t many roundabouts,maybe because it is a small city itis not crowded.

In my village there is the main roundabout. Street lights all over the main street and crossing near to schools.

In my country, car, buses, lorries and motorbikes never give way to people on a crossing. I am very sad whenever I see foreigners who come and visit my country tried to cross the road at the crossing. I can feel how scared they are.
5 years ago, we still got traffic jam at rush hour but now it is no longer rush hour anymore because traffic -jams happens anytime and anywhere.
