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.

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.

what aboute street light lol.

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 :)
