A conservative plate boundary, sometimes called a [transform] plate margin, occurs where plates [slide] past each other in [opposite] directions, or in the [same] direction but at different [speeds]. Friction is eventually overcome and the plates slip past in a sudden movement. The [shockwaves] created produce an earthquake. This occurs at the San Andreas [Fault] in California..
