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.

I live in a building and it is inside a small society all of the roads in our society are in proper condition, which makes driving easy, you'll also see lots of street lights and crossings also. I usually see kids riding skates or bicycle on the pavement, having strong roads and pavement is so important to prevent accidents there is another society close to us and the roads are damaged from heavy raining and many accidents have taken place over there. This one time a kid fell from his bicycle and he broke his leg because of the damaged roads.

Almost all of these things I can see in my hometown. It’s a little bit different that there are traffic lights set in front of roundabouts close the centre of Edinburgh.
