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.

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 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, 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.

In Turkey, cars don't give way to people on a crossing. When i was in UK, cars always would give way to people on a crossing, so i was so excited. I think, all people in the world should obey this basic rule.

I am currently residing in Saudi Arabia. The place where i stay is small town about 150 kilometer from the main city and the place where my home is situated is near to the main road, opposite to the main road is the school. There is a crossroad about 1km from our apartment. There are signpost indicating the government buildings, mosques and the name of the roads leading to them.
