Assunto:  in the street on the street.
 
Mensagem:  A very difficult but interesting question...  Sometimes "on" and "in" are interchangeable and sometimes they are not.

I live on the streets = I live in the streets
The car is parked on the street. = The car is parked in the street.

The word on the street is... =  The word in the street is...
There is a parade in the street.  = There is a parade on the street.
