One interesting aspect about crossing the street: when the cars have a red light, but also the pedestrians have the same red light on the traffic lights, the pedestrians can cross the street, they have the priority. For them to see the car's traffic lights, another traffic light that corresponds to cars are placed somewhere that the pedestrians can see it. It was a bit confusing at first to me, but I got used to it quick. Harder was on my way back to Romania :)
