Unlike concrete, asphalt is not a slippery surface even when wet. Water pools are unlikely to form even when the area is very “lumpy”. Unlike concrete, water pooling in an asphalt surface will quickly dissipate leaving the surface dry and safe.
If you have ever seen spoon drains in concrete you’ll know that water will sit for days depending on evaporation to dry it out. Meanwhile, mould will form and a slippery film will eventuate, requiring pressure hosing or harsh chemical removal. Not so with asphalt which is resistant to pooling and mould growth and not slippery when wet!
