Are Phoenix Arizona's roadways made from old tires?
Penelope from Chicago, Illinois
My parents live in Arizona (not Phoenix) and I've traveled the road from Phoenix to their house at least twice a year for 10 years and never saw any "Used Tire" roads. #1 I would think that they would be HOT, as they are black and Phoenix is close to the temperature of the sun's surface (my husband's opinion anyway). #2 If they were re-using it would seem to me they want to let people know by signs. NOT THAT AZ is a recycling state! I cringe each time I throw away a can at my parents. I kid you not, when we drove from CA, I brought back all the recycling! You can recycle there, but you have to collect it all yourself and take it down to places, no curbside pickup! As for the tires, I think they go to places like tracks and such, it's a treat to walk on those rubberized tracks!
