This steepest street infographic discusses the most vertically inclined streets in America.

Those among the list include, unsurprisingly, several streets in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Because constructing these streets can require a lot of civil engineering savvy, extra time but be put into the structural planning of these roads. The infographic is not only intriguing based on the information it holds, but is incredibly well-designed with graphics that perfectly suit the theme of the piece. Much of the data is placed on illustrated tilted streets and strongly reference the idea behind the chart. The piece features a light blue and black color scheme, which creates a strong contrast and easy reading.

Detailing an issue many people wouldn't think twice about, this infographic is both obscure and fantastic.
