Bulgaria - Traffic Lights with an illuminated count-down in red or green to the next change.
Dublin - Traffic lights with ped crossing countdowns - that are made of stainless steel and don't look as though they were made in the 1950's (like ours)
Lanzarote - In our villa - door frame with integral rubber seal to prevent banging - well engineered door and frame with stainless steel hinges.
