Asphalt roads are safe roads

A study by the Swedish Road Institute concluded that the key aspects influencing road safety were surface friction, longitudinal evenness, megatexture, retro-reflectivity, surface-course porosity.

Asphalt can be formulated to provide tailored surface properties that satisfy all requirements for surface friction. Asphalt pavements can be installed to deliver excellent longitudinal evenness with fewer joints than other materials.
