    Sentences.

    Please correct me if I write these sentences incorrectly.
    1. The policeman ordered them not to play football in the street.
    2. They had been driving for 3 hours before they stopped for lunch at the roadside restaurant.
    Thanks for help.

    Re: Sentences.

    I'd change 'before' to 'when' just to be on the safe side, but otherwise, your sentences are fine, Mylevt.

    If I use on the street is it OK? Explain me why?

    'On the street' is OK too, because you can be in or on the street.

    Re: Sentences.

    No, I don't agree with you about that.
    It is impossible to use whether on the street or in the street.
    I think there is something different. But I don't know how to explain. I need someone.

    A simple 'thank you' would suffice, Mylevt.

    Re: Sentences.

    sorry Mister Miscawber.
    I don't mean to hurt you. Only because I don't have tact in how to express myself.
    Forgive me.
