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 ;)
