Heading north from Santa Monica to Oakland and approaching San Jose, I heard the following:

Approach: “N1234, remain east and north of highway 101.”

N1234: “Ah, 1234, roger.”

Approach: “N1234, please remain east and north of the freeway.”

N1234: “Ah OK, 101, 1234.”

Approach: “N1234, do you see that long thing on your right with the cars going up and down it? Stay north and east of that.”
