Question for Native Speakers of English

I'm interested in whether the following questions sound all right.

Question 1

Context: You're driving with your family, and you happen to drive right past the place where you used to live.

Your sibling notices and asks, "Didn't we used to live where we just drove past?"

Question 2

Context: You and your friends notice that a police car has just stopped at the place where you think one of your friends lives.

One of your friends turns to you and asks, "Doesn't Sasha live where that police car just stopped at?"


If these sound all right, please let me know. If these don't sound all right, or would sound much better with some extremely minimal change, please let me know that instead.
