    In/on chicago ave


    Could you please check if the following is correct.

    In Chicago Ave the rightmost lane seems to be wider than the one next to it, which is very practical.

    There has been much discussion on the forum regarding 'in/on the street' as far as I can recollect, and so far I've learned that 'in' is AmE, while 'on' is BrE. Please correct me if I wrong.

    Thank you very much!

    Re: In/on chicago ave

    It's the other way round.

    My friend lives in Hythe Road. (BrE)
    My friend lives on Wilshire Boulevard. (AmE)
