"Be careful not to confuse "street" and "road"!" I honestly don't know the difference, and use the words interchangeably.

I actually feel like we wouldn't use street in a rural setting...streets are more for cities and roads are for the countryside.

Me either, but if I had to guess it is based on relative traffic. Highway > road > street.

Road and street are pretty much the same and used interchangeably.

I'm going to report this as a mistake as I agree with all comments. Maybe Duo will correct it.
