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.

In the city where i live and no far of my home there is a crossroad but without signspost. In fact, there is three roads, one of them take to the town square.
In my city street lights work as soon as the sunset and the traffic jump is essentially in the rush hour; about 7 am in the morning and about 5pm in the evening . In the street corner there is a bus stop where poeple can wait on the pavement and just in front of the bus stop there is a crossing where poeple can cross to the ather side of the road. In the end of the street there is a big roundabout,

well the city where I live actually there isn´t a lot street lights on street but we can see a lot bus stop in all the places and also roundabouts

Well, I live in a small city but yeah there is roundabouts and crossroads and oh my god there is so much traffic on that one crossroads which is near green market! But there is no such thing as crossing in my small city and no traffic lights. And in my childhood, my friends and I use to play on pavement which is along the side of our nearby road. And there are signposts.

In the city that I live in you can see a lot of roundabouts. Actually it is som policy that began in Norway from twenty years ago. They think that in this way can control accidents more than before. Learning how to drive in these rods for me was not so easy at first, but little by little I become more familiar with the rules and now I like it very much.
