Tony,

The rule you are confused about deals with "When referring to the street, road, avenue, or boulevard people live on. " I hope that helps. Rene (not a native French speaker)

This relates to:
En vs dans with locations (prepositions) -

When referring to the street, road, avenue, or boulevard people live on (using habiter), you can either use dans la/le, simply la/le or nothing at all. BUT you can NEVER use sur (i.e. on) in that context!
