I love Highway 1, lived in Seattle three years and toured the area numerous times - usually along the "1". Fantastic scenery albeit a bit touristy in places.
As to the "unavoidable characteristic": Most of my touring was done with a fullsize pickup with a 35´ fifthwheel camper, and even I was annoyed by the slow traffic...
