Where I live there are a lot of roundabouts, traffic lights and junctions, that often are very dangerous for pedestrians. My city isn't designed for pedestrian and people riding bicycles, because the streets are too small and congested, while the pavements are too small for two pedestrians.

There are here a lot of junctions, mostly with traffic lights. We almost have signposts around so that it is almost impossible to get lost.Kind police officers are always in the area., so it is safe.

In the big cities traffic is a terrible. Many cars, many people go from somewhere to somwhere. During rush hours you can hear a lot of klaxon and probably you can feel like you will crazy yourselves. Many local manager advices us that do not drive at rush hours if we don't have emergency situation.During rush hours we can use subways, buses, trams and, trains.

Where I live there are various streets with roundabout, signposts and traffic light. Is very common to see roundabout anywhere because are more safer than traffic lights. We have a main road called M30 which cross for the centre of city.

I can see none of these around my house. :)
Don't you traffic lights in your neighborhood? Don't you see any signpost in your town? I thought that traffic lights are in the street in the whole world.
Thank you, dariowins. Well, Yes, there are traffic lights in my town, but I'm not quite sure how big a neighborhood is. I thought it meant less than 2-3 books. Traffic lights are not all around in my neighborhood. :)
