If you think the steepest streets in the USA are in San Fransisco, you would be wrong.
A list of the ten steepest streets by an outfit called Infographics rates the Waipio Road in Hawaii, in the historic Waipio Valley, as the steepest, at an astounding 45% angle. And according to this list, Los Angeles has more steep streets than San Francisco.
