(Noun, Archaic) Most often used by people who ride bikes to describe the part of the road that lies between the streetcar (aka tram, trolley) tracks. Scorchers & Wheelsmen (now: roadie & cyclist) originally rode here as it was the only paved part of the street. Now, because of the risk of crossing the tracks, one is lucky that they did not fall off their bicycle while manoeuvring to ride in this section of the street.
That truck was parked so poorly that I had to pass it in the devil strip.
