My home is located far away from main roads but we are near by streets and street lights.

Most of those things can't be seen near my home since i lives in a village(country site). Road and signposts are the things i usually sees in my area.

Apart from roundabouts and the town square that is roughly 10 minutes away driving from home, I can see all the remaining things near here. There are no roundarounds, but instead we have a lot of traffic lights on the crossroads. Although there are many crossings, you should be very careful especially, when there are no traffic lights because a few drivers give way to people on foot. One more thing that I like about the area are the street lights, roads and streets are always brightened which makes you feel a bit more secure, particularly in winter.

My home is a pacefull place, which is far from the center of the city. There are a lot of singpsts in every corner to indicate the number of the street. Also I can see street lights, traffic lights and crossings. There are some bus stops and little roundabouts.

In France, there is a lot of roundabouts, use for traffic regulation but also used for street decoration. Some of them are very famous and people come to see them.

hi, is this correct Neighbourhoods area, and is it singular or plural

Hello naddy,

Off the top of my head, I can't think of a context in which 'neighbourhoods area' would be correct. It might be 'neighbourhood's area' (as in 'in my grandparents' neighbourhood's area there are no restaurants'), but that's a little awkward. 

Without having a better idea of what it means, I'm afraid I can't even say if it's singular or plural or much else about it. If you can provide the sentence it's in, and even the sentences before and after, I expect one of us can work out what it means.

Best wishes,

Kirk
