My house is next to the road which buses, lorries, motobikes drive on. There is no pavement for walker, no traffic light, few street lights, some signposts, walkers have to run as fast as possible if they need crossing. Many crossroads without traffic lights and a dangerous roundabout where no street light, no signpost, there was a lot of accidents. The Goverment is building a square.

Our family lives in a small town with a lot of grafic squares. There are also streets with traffic lights so the cars, people and the bicycles are safe.

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.

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