The San Andreas Fault moves every year due to the shifting of the continental plates on either side of it. The western side of the fault is moving in a northwest direction while the eastern side is moving southwest. The friction between the two tectonic plates causes the shift in location of the fault each year. On average, the rate of slippage is 33-37 mm per year.
