An important consideratiStreet name signs identify streets for the benefit of visitors, especially postal workers and the emergency services. They may also indicate the district in which the street lies. A bench is essentially a chair made for more than one person, usually found in central parts of settlements (such as plazas and parks). They are often provided by the local councils or contributors to serve as a place to rest and admire the view. Armrests in between are sometimes provided to discourage lying down and/or unwanted closeness. Bollards are posts, short poles, or pillars with the purpose of preventing the movement of vehicles onto sidewalks or grass. Post boxes, also known as mail boxes, are found throughout the world, and have a variety of form. Phone boxes or telephone booths are prominent in most cities, and while ranging drastically in the amount of cover they offer users, e.g. many only cover the phone itself while others are full booths, are instantly recognisable. The widespread use of mobile phones has resulted in a decrease in their numbers.
