I'm not convinced this is usually true. It maybe UK specific, but 
municipal boundaries were more likely to originally be placed on 
physical boundaries to farms & estates such as walls, fences etc. before 
tracks/roads were developed. Roads subsequently evolved along those 
boundaries afterwards.

It would be pretty silly to have a municiple boundary splitting the 
centre of a road so different administrations were responsible for 
maintaining the left & the right.
