hello , everyone ,I am a Chinese living in Vietnam ,so i should better talking about Vietnam's traffic law .There's no law at all , because nobody respect to whatever they call it "law" .when the Green light is on , Pedestrians can cross on the crossing as well as in front of the vehicles wherever they stop.. In rush hour vehicles drive on pavements with pedestrians together.Chatting on the mobile while driving on motor bikes .Hundreds and hundreds of parents waiting for their  kids on their bikes outside school for taking them home after school .Accidents , violents happen every single minute .Think of that before you visit VIETNAM.   

Hi Joice and everyone, I'm living in Vietnam and have no defense on the terrible n massive traffic we have here. But think twice when saying "accidents, violents happen every single minute".

In my country there are laws about crossing the roads, but frequently drivers do not respect to pedestrians. I live in México.

As a pedestrian we have to safe by ourselves, otherwise we may face accident. In some countries  pedestrians think they have a right to use any time any where to cross the road .They cross road like a snail without thinking about the waiting vehicles for them.

In my country,Turkey has lots of traffic laws. For example when a red light is opened,people must stop,cars move across. Moreover when a green light is opened,cars wait for people and people move across. Although there are lots of traffic laws in Turkey,many traffic accident occur. On the one hand some drivers are very fast and careless. Briefly,As long as people want to live a good world,initially they have to obey the traffic rules.

In Japan,there are different type of traffic lights .these pedestrian traffic lights act on green light to ring melody or birds song.It's useful for people who have bad eyesight.
I think that we're almost keep the traffic laws in Japan.we have been instructed that the green traffic light means "You are allowed to go if it is safe."in the driving school.Pedestrians safety is the top of priority!!
we have to learn about the traffic laws and driving technics or something and have to pass the driving license test which we have to get more 90's so hard.
