Hy, my name is Julián, i'm from Paute, Ecuador. where live my streets is bad, not is paved, apart is very dusty and the state not make nothing.

Here, we have a lot of traffic and streets are very busy. Not always clean because which is a shame sometime.
On the road, we have everything to drive safely such as traffic lights, signposts, highways, cycle paths...but people don't follow them all the time ...and we called that accidents...!!

Well, the streets in my neighborhood are dirt and very large, although thanks to the mayor of my canton; I have already begun to cement the streets and the truth is that they are very beautiful

They are really bad and dirty.. Every where you can find people walking among cars as there are no pavements to walk on and the streets are narrow and u may get hit by a side mirror of a car if u are not curios enough.. you may go crazy or get angry when u dive during the rush hours as the public transports wanna drop off people among the traffic jam and u wanna get home .. another bad thing is that in some places the drivers dont respect the lanes and the may change their street lanes abrutly to reach faster than you .. DRIVING HERE IN EGYPT IS SOME SORT OF DIGGING IN THE ROCKS !!

I live in a lonely street. The street is along a domitory and there are no houses in the other side.

They are motorway having a crossing, traffic lights, kerb, pavement, signposts with junction and roundabout, supervises by a police officer.

We ought to comply with traffic rules for safe journey.

There are good streets and roads in my city, also you can see a lot of signposts and traffic lights which instruct all drivers. Sometimes I see a police officer on the road who help drivers when the traffic light is not working.

Hello everyone, i live in a countryside so the roads aren't too crowded. There are many traffic lights and signposts to instruct everyone. Unfortunately, many drivers don't follow the rules so there are many accidents

Both sides of the road are fill up with parked cars and pavements are with vendors like almost all streets in yangon where I live. Most drivers do not want to stop or wait at crossing while pedestrians crossing the road.
