Why do I keep getting corrected from "Du siehst, ..." to "Man sieht"? Why is this required to be impersonal?

Warum ist „du siehst, ......“ falsch ?

"unterwegs"? That seems rather non-literal for Duolingo. I went with "auf der Strasse" -- is that wrong?

@ellenkeyne. - "Auf der Straße" = "on the road". That's possible, that's right. - By the way, do you know Jack Kerouac's novel "On the road", first edition in 1957? It was translated also into German. And the title? - "Unterwegs"... (June 30, 2018)

Question to native speakers: Could "Du siehst, wie lange sie auf der Straße waren." be a correct translation for certain situations? Like: I had put the flower pots on the road next to my van - and forgot to take them along. The sun was shining, now the flowers are dead. You see, how long they were on the road .....

What is wrong with this, "Du siehst wie lange, dass sie unterwegs gewesen sind?"

The "dass" is wrong

Possible is: "Du siehst, wie lange sie unterwegs waren"

"gewesen sind" is probably "have been" in this example
"You see how long they have been on the road"
