I'm in Silicon Valley.  The San Andreas fault is a few miles from here.  A 
map of the bay area will show a dozen major faults.  A neighborhood map may 
have several smaller lines.

The USGS has good GPS receivers sprinkled around the area.  You can see 
antenna domes on a post alongside the highway.
(Time sink warning.)

The fault moves about as fast as your fingernails grow, an inch per year.  
That's one side relative to the other.  I don't know how fast the pair is 

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
