    Do you walk into a street or onto a street?  Any idea which is proper grammar, or do you have...

    examples?

    You walk onto a street, if you walked into a street you would be going underground.

    Of course, I have heard the line running into the street which is usually used when someone runs onto the road.

    I believe the safer thing to do is to walk onto the street. One doesn't stand by the curb and watch to see if their child walks ONTO the street.

    It's much more likely that you'd be more concerned if your child walked INTO the street.

    IMHO

    You would be walking onto a street. To be walking "into a street" would imply that you're going into the concrete/ground itself.

    Like most grammar, I believe that it would depend on the way it is being used.

    Are you throwing your self into the street, as in into on-coming traffic?  Throwing yourself onto the street implies that you are dropping your body on the ground.

    Are you taking your first step onto the street?  It fits perfectly into this singular phrase. 
    Defining a location and making it plural changes it again!  I am taking my first step into the streets of Harlem.

    That is the fun/frustrating part about language.
