Well, I live in a small city but yeah there is roundabouts and crossroads and oh my god there is so much traffic on that one crossroads which is near green market! But there is no such thing as crossing in my small city and no traffic lights. And in my childhood, my friends and I use to play on pavement which is along the side of our nearby road. And there are signposts.

In the city that I live in you can see a lot of roundabouts. Actually it is som policy that began in Norway from twenty years ago. They think that in this way can control accidents more than before. Learning how to drive in these rods for me was not so easy at first, but little by little I become more familiar with the rules and now I like it very much.

In Turkey, cars don't give way to people on a crossing. When i was in UK, cars always would give way to people on a crossing, so i was so excited. I think, all people in the world should obey this basic rule.

I am currently residing in Saudi Arabia. The place where i stay is small town about 150 kilometer from the main city and the place where my home is situated is near to the main road, opposite to the main road is the school. There is a crossroad about 1km from our apartment. There are signpost indicating the government buildings, mosques and the name of the roads leading to them.

unfortunately, i didnt see more traffic lights our city. because more people dont use the traffic obeys. please fasten your seat belt in your journey. have nice day.

I live in a small town in Northern Italy; it is a lively town with a lot of traffic that's why there are many roundabouts and traffic lights. I can walk on the pavement along the side of the road to go to the city centre where there is a beautiful big Square and a Castle.

Surprisingly once I have seen the name of the capital of my country of origine written in a signpost which has a distance of more than 6 thousand KM.

The city where i live is one of the populated city of India. It is the capital of India. Near by my locality. i can see streetlights which enlighten the street at night. There is bye pass road by which you can enter in main locality. on which the heavy traffic passes through out the day. but no worry, it is managed with the help of traffic lights, crossroads and round about. people usually take buses to go office. for which they need to wait on bus stop. pedestrian use pavement to walk along the side of road, to cross the road there is a facility of zebra crossing, under pass and subway.

I live in the biggist city in my country. So there are all things in My city.

Near my home I can see, roundabouts, traffic lights, roads, signposts, and also crossroads.
