Why not, "On the street, horses walk"? It proposed instead, "On the Street, horses run". I thought laufen was more commonly walking.

ooh wow just did cat and dog running onto the street

so if i run ON the street then it is dative (auf der Strasse) (staying within the street but running on it)

if i run ONTO the street then it is Akkusative (auf die Strasse) (going from say the footpath to the street)
