  • Going north on 101 that’s a long steep hill leading into the turn at the bottom, and it’s easy to gain speed on it and misjudge the turn. The most dangerous turn on 101 is at the top of the hill, if you are going southwards because the road is banked so that it tends to slide you into the northbound lanes – exactly the opposite effect from that which banking is intended to achieve.
