Well, if your talking about Main/MacArthur, then you are slightly wrong.
They intersect once in Irvine, and once in Santa Ana.

Anyway Main runs N/S and then turns and runs E/W, while
MacArthur runs E/W then turns N/S. That is why they cross twice.
They are never really running parallel to each other.
