About 200 metres north my home there is a crossroads, signposts, and crossing. If you are looking for a bus, then go west crossroads approximately 500 metres you will find a bus stop right there next roundabout. You should be vigilant when you are there to protect yourself from accidence because it's a rush hour.

I remember only several roundabouts in my city. There a lot of sign post, street lights. It makes people life comfortable. When I drive I can see numerous crossing. It is not good for drivers.
