Concrete's the street for good homemakers! No tar to track in. No dust and dirt from peri- odic patching and surface treatment. Laid flat, concrete stays flat--there are never any hollow spots to collect water or to cause dangerous swerves. Concrete's grainy surface assures quick, safe stops--re- sists skidding, even when wet. And concrete reflects far more light than a dark surface for better visibility at night. With all this, concrete's ini- tial cost is moderate. And the city can all but forget about upkeep.~ Modern concrete is the preferred pavement for residential streets . . . and it belongs on the street in front of your home. Get together with your neighbors! If your street needs paving, make your preference for ~oncrete known.
