MOST CROOKED ROAD IN THE WORLD!!

Here's a small video clip I took during a recent trip to San Francisco (SFO). It's of the world famous Lombard Street in downtown San Francisco, and is considered one of the "crookedest" streets in the world. It has eight hairpin turns and was built like this to help passenger cars descend the 27 degree slope of the hill. During busy weekends, over 300 cars an hour go down this street. Better hope you have good brakes!!! ;-)
