    Default People in the streets

    Does peole in the streets only mean homeless peole? Does it include ordinary people too?

    Thank you very much

    "people in the street (not streets)" is standard meaning anybody out there, passers-by.

    "people on the streets", on the other hand, means "beggers", like in:

    It is the very presence of poor people on the streets asking for money that people in the street are objecting to.

    good luck!
