Asphalt for the road instead of cement

For a car driver like me, it is a fact that an asphalted road is much better than a cemented road. My father said that the asphalt is smooth on the tires as if the car seems to levitate a bit. But with the cemented road, the car levitates and drops with a bump like you are running on a bumpy road. The rationale for the cemented road is the cost. The asphalt needs to be replaced after 3 to 5 years while the cemented road can stay up to 10 years or longer.

I don’t know if the government is saving money but the comfort of the vehicles should be taken into consideration. Besides, I can see that some cemented roads have cracks due to the weight of the overloaded trucks. With the asphalt, it becomes wavy to the heavy weight of the trucks so it is practically just the same In other words, the asphalt is better than the cement.

  1. you should drive someplace where the road changes many times in the winter. The reality of potholes would put smooth out. Now you worry about how big is the pothole.

    Big enough and it ruins your tire.
    Bigger than that can ben the frame of the car, or crack the axel.
