    both or either?

    A common sign in my country "No parking on both sides" but I read a book that tells that it should be "No parking on either side". So, which is right, either or both?

    The problem is greater in the positive- you can queue in either lane, but not in both because youcan't be in two places at the sametime.

    The American staple diet enables many of them to get in several lines at once, though ;)
