Definition

Agyrophobia - Abnormal and persistent fear of crossing streets, highways, and other thoroughfares.


Sufferers experience anxiety even though they realize that streets, highways, and other thoroughfares pose no threat commensurate with their fear.


From the Greek "gyrus" meaning turning or whirling, and the Greek "Phobos" meaning fear.
