Near my home there are roads, pavements, traffic lights, crossroads, corners, street lights, crossing and sing posts.
In Madrid you there are too much bike rider on the pavement and all the street has signpost and traffic lights.

I live in an area near the city center; therefore I can see a crossroad, the pedestrian crossing and the pavements, but there are neither traffic lights nor bus stop.

I can see the road,crossroad,pavement and traffic lights from my window. Here is no square,signposts and roundabouts near my home. But it is crossroad and bus stop not far from my home.

I can see the corner and pavements from our balcony. the traffic lights are 5min away from our home. the bus stop is within walking distance from home. there isn't crossing and roundabout near my home. there are street lights in front of my home to help people can see clearly.

Wow, it took me some time to consider "pavement." I almost forgot it's the BrE version for the AmE "sidewalk."

In my village, there are many traffic lights on the street. At night, they turn on the street lighs to help people can see the road clearly.
