Our car broke down in /at Farrer Road.

In British English, which is the correct preposition?

Thanks.

@tanguatlay,
I would say "on" Farrer Road, but I'm not familiar with the British way of saying this.

@tanguatlay,
On.

Do you ask the same questions over and over and over again until you get an answer that pleases you?

@Miss L Toad,
Heaven forfend Miss Toad, was that sardonic outburst a peremptory, pejorative prerogative?

One would be inclined to say 'The Rolls carked it on Farrer Road' certainly not 'at Farrer Road' although one might admit 'in Farrer Road'.
