Sure, but streets like that are extremely uncommon in the US as a whole, compared to europe where the streets are so tight that it is very common to see cars parked almost entirely up on sidewalks and it is not uncommon at all for the lanes to be so tight that people have to reverse and back out to let a car coming the opposite way get through.

So maybe .1% of US streets fit the description and something like 25% of European streets do.
