It ain't a phobia to want to avoid a shitty ass section of road that has killed people, it's smart. There are several chunks of road I avoid on a bike. The I-5, highway 16 ramps in Tacoma. I take the long around on a bike for example. But you poor folks stuck in the city haven't always got good choices.

That whole thing is a shitshow going south/west toward kitsap. People in cars always seem to be taken by surprise and behave badly, doing panic lane changes.

Going toward Seattle it isn't as bad, although the merging onto I-5 is insane. It is a bad news thing for bikes. Feels like it would be nice to have a light saber to smack peoples hood with.....

I have had to do a lot of commuting to Seattle for the last couple months. Saw some AMAZING bad driving... One REALLY bad case of 'road rage' and more Tesla's than I have ever seen on the road before. Guess those hills need a 600 hp electric to get up them!!!
