There are many traffi lights, crossing, crossroad and pavements in my country. Especially big cities have most of traffic on rush hour. We always stop and give way to people on crossing.

In my home town normally people walk on pavements, roundabouts are not so many as crossroads and crossings. Some crossroads have traffic lights and others do not have. each street is equipped with street light. We do not have a large square where people can meet.

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.

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.
