In / at / on

Предлог «at», как правило, связан с объектами, при которых люди занимаются деятельностью, связанную с этими объектами: на светофоре ждать разрешения двигаться дальше, на свадьбе праздновать рождение новой семейной ячейки. «At» означает «при (перед, у) каком-то объекте». «On» — на поверхности находимся или на поверхность движемся какого-то объекта. «In» означает «внутри ограниченного 2D / 3D пространства», а также «написано, изображено».
