Below is a selection of roads for this area. I have not driven every road in the area, and not every road I drive is worthy of ending up on this list. If there are any roads that you feel should be listed and don't see below, let me know.

In an attempt to better explain what the road is like, I have also developed a rating system for the roads I drive. These reviews are based on personal preference and perspective, but hopefully they will help you decide which route(s) to take on your next drive.

Lateral G is based in the Los Angeles area and as such I spend most of my time driving roads in the Southern California area. On occasion I do head north however and this has given me an opportunity to scout out some roads in the central part of the State between L.A. and the Bay Area. While it can take a considerable amount of time to get to some of these roads from L.A., once you get there the light amount of traffic you encounter can more than make up for it.
