Either I'm completely confused or the example text or images are wrong. In the first example the subject as described enters screens from LEFT and leaves right. Not the other way around. Which then makes the change of camera position to the opposite side of the street having them enter from right,go across screen to exit left. It's hard to get this continuity thing right!
