I worked on cars for 32 years and never referred to curb side or street side it is right or left. If you are in a car, truck, motorhome or trailer for that matter looking forward right is the curb side and left is the street side, so why not just use right and left as long as you don't get your right hand mixed up with the left you will be ok.

curbside and streetside

When I am driving with a particular friend of mine I don't know which is the driver side and which is the passenger side!!!! But I've only been driving 50 years.

Curb or Street

I agree with the simplification to use left or right.

I agree with Massey Ferguson. The instructions for the turn signals don't say "streetside blinker", they say "left blinker".
As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

Hi, I think some of you are forgetting that all this curb side / street side, is trailer lingo.
