Where I live, roads are really narrow. I live in campaign so you don't have much visibility and you have to be carefull and drive slowly because you can easily cross tractor or animals. Furthermore, the roads don't always have cement so sometimes, there are hollows in them.

Recently, my city is changed completely, the roads improve and lots of bridges were built, but still have a problem with people crossing because cars are driven on speedily and there is no places for people crossing.
also in my city , there are roundabout like El Tahrier Square and it is easy to get lost because the street have poor signpost .

The road where my house is situated, is a closed road , so there are not many cars driving on, only those of my neighbours. Along the street there is the pavement where you can walk and there’s no crossing or traffic lights. Before entering the street there is a signpost on the left side of the road, indicating that there is a closed street.
It’s a very safe place therefore no police officer is needed in place.

I live on the corner of a junction with no traffic lights and cycle lane. So if you'd like to ride a bike, you get to ride among busy cars. It is quite not safe. And also, there is no police officer to control the traffic. You have to be careful, when you cross the road. The more the road is clear, the more chance you will be in danger cause most of the drivers never drive in limited speed.

There are no roundabouts where I live. The streets are not very large, and there are lots of junctions with traffic lights and crossings. Police officers are always driving cars or motorbikes, if you see them standing on the street, it is because something is happening, but that's very rare. It is really easy to get lost in this city, because streets are very similar, fortunately, there are signposts everywhere that help you to find your way.

I'm living in the small village so we've roads and streets very well are completely empty so much that it isn't have traffic lights in the city, and we've few junctions, signposts and crossing, and the police officers are in everywhere in the city.

I live in a small town in the countryside called Sumaré. It's really hard to get around because of the bad traffic signs. Crossings are fading, for example. Most drivers are very disrespectful. It doesn't matter if you are walking or driving, you have to be very patient.

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
