The San Andreas fault line, it runs 810 miles allong the California coast line, from Los Angeles to San Francisco. The type of fault is a strike-slip fault, which means that Los Angeles which is on th left side of the fault an San Francisco which is on the right side of the fault, making the two cities heading towards each other at a very slow pace.
