Philadelphia Could Get Rubber Sidewalks

The Grave Digger
Philadelphia city councilman Jim Kenney recently toured Chicago to see environmentally-friendly city projects there. He came back with an idea or two: using rubber for sidewalks.
He says rubber sidewalks are made from recycled tires. They don't crack, and they last longer than concrete. Kenney says rubber sidewalks could also reduce the number of slip-and-fall accidents and the resulting lawsuits.
Link. Rubber streets would likely be harder than a running track, so we probably won't see anyone bouncing to work.
