That is only if they bothered to re-paint them if the street was re-directed by the new mayor.
I listened to a radio interview one time of a transit chief here in Veracruz who was telling people that streets that parallel the ocean have preference unless it has been deemed to be the opposite and he couldn't name the streets that were excluded from the rule and he couldn't say why they were excluded. When pressed for more details he said that everyone has to drive with care and then he left quickly.
When in doubt, put your nose out a little bit, if it is all clear, goose it.
The danger is in the "linger".
