I tend to abbreviate Saint (to St), because the full version is almost
never used, and certainly never spoken by anybody locally (they say
something closer to "Sunt", which they wouldn't say if confronted with
the unabbreviated version).

Whereas Road / Avenue / Street get written out in full, because full
versions are regularly used, and almost always spoken.
