Rabbit’s fear is intense as he drives down this road on his supposed journey down south, the first time he leaves Janice. It’s ironic that the road that scares him is a road is a "lover’s lane" when he’s fleeing love gone bad. The road also leads to a crossroads. At the end of the lover’s lane Rabbit comes to a highway, and can choose to continue his journey south, or head north, back to his home. He sees no signs to guide him, and head back home.
