Hello,

Which preposition should be used before street, on or in?

eg:

1. That little boy is peeing in the street.

2. That little boy is peeing on the street.

If both are fine, usually which would be used in what scenario?

Thanks. Emotion: smile

Both are fine, and I don't usually discuss peeing on the street, so I cannot determine which might 'usually' be used -- and how many scenarios do you imagine there might be about a child peeing on/in the street, anyway?!

Thanks a lot.Emotion: smile

Sorry, I failed to make a proper example and didn't put my question clearly.Emotion: sad

To make it clear, in the following sentences, how would native speaker choose between in and on?

1. I'm walking in/on the street.

2. My house is in/on the fifth street.

3. Nowadays, there are more and more crimes happening in/on the streets.

4. It's 5th floor, it's dangerous to throw stuff out of the window. It may fall on passerby in/on the street.

5. Beggars are usually asking for money in/on the street.

Thanks~!!
1. I'm walking in/on the street. -- 'In' suggests there might also be a sidewalk.

2. My house is in/on the fifth street.-- BrE uses 'in'; AmE uses 'on'

3. Nowadays, there are more and more crimes happening in/on the streets.-- No difference to my ear.

4. It's 5th floor, it's dangerous to throw stuff out of the window. It may fall on passerby in/on the street.-- As #3

5. Beggars are usually asking for money in/on the street.-- 'On' sounds more natural to my ear.
