My building is very close to a crossroads in city, as my neighbourd's building is right on the corner street. On each four pavement streets of this crossroads there is a traffic lights and also crossings on roads for each traffic lights. There are also as the same place some signposts with different colors on the background: in green are mentionned others cities direction to follow, and in white nearest places in the city. All long of each street there are street lights brighting the town at night.

close my home, there is a crossroad where there is not a traffic light so that point on the street is so dangerous for people.

In my city, there are no roundabouts. Actually, I have never seen them in my country. So I defenitely will be confused how to drive if I go into them.

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.

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,
