I live in a big modern city now. There are a lot of traffic lights, roundabouts, crossings and crossroads. People without cars usually use the pavement. Rude drivers are generally reluctant to give way to people on crossing

For the last few years I have been living in a small village. Near my house and around there are only small streets and paths. There are no traffic lights and no traffic. There is only one sign with the name of the village at the beginning of the village.

Since my house is on the main road, I can usually find traffic lights , street lights and some crossings. In the downtown, there are many people gathering at the square especially on weekends. There are about 5 roundabouts in my city. Traffic jumps are always happen on every morning , especially on rush hours.

Along the crowded avenue I live nearby, you can find gas stations, markets, pavements, crossings, corners, street lights, bus stops, and some traffic lights two blocks away from my house. Also, in strange cases, you can find traffic at the crossroads near the market (from which my house is three and a half blocks apart) on Sunday evening.

in my village there are street lights on the roads, but they are ot working. no traffic lights or crossing exist here, you drive as you wish, roads are full of holes, you need here an American car, cars like kia .... if fall in a hole will not escape . the problem with these cars is tht they need lots of fuel, and the govenment eliminate all supports due to the economic crisis
