The problem with Pass Avenue is that it doesn't know what it wants to be -- a major street with its own freeway exit, or a quiet residential country road. It has an identity crisis. On the one hand, you can give a friend directions to your house and tell them to take the Pass Avenue exit from the 134 Freeway (when they're heading east)
