    I dugged the article about Canton Avenue in Pittsburgh is the unofficial steepest public street in the United States and the world. This street is grade of 37% or 37 feet rise by elevation in 100 feet horizontal.
    The Streets of San Francisco, CA!

    Lived in SF for a while. So many brake and transmission shops in that town. Hated walking anywhere there.

    @itsmee - the streets of "san fran" is like riding on a roller coaster :-)
    You'll have to ask my wife, who stalled the van (losing power steering and brakes) last week while coming down a very steep road with a hair-pin turn at the bottom.
    terribubble! I take it that she's ok. and the van ...

    I assume this was meant for me... Yes she made it (don't know how) but was extremely upset when she called me. It was a private road way back in the woods, and huge drop-offs at the turn.
    Baldwin Street,is the steepest street in the world.

    Hey what about the rest of the world?
