Can plastic roads be the pot hole solution?

I think I found a solution for all the pot holes around here. Plastic roads!

I didn't think this up, it's already a thing in Rotterdam, a plastic road made from recycled plastic bottles will be used to construct prefabricated roads!

They are light and they won't break or get holes. They would take weeks to make and they are environmentally friendly. What do you think?

More on the plastic roads here in the Daily Mail.

Sounds like they have at least one major problem to overcome:

But a company director has expressed concerns that the design could be slippery when wet.

Well, that's in Europe.

In the Grove it might take City Hall several Years, not weeks. Look at 27th av.

Embed solar panels and I'd be all for it.

Plastic roads might melt here in our Tropical climate. This isn't Rotterdam! :)

Sorry, but there is no such thing as "Environmentally Friendly Plastic". Google "The War on Plastics". There no such thing as "Plastic". The definition of Plastic is something easily molded, normally under about 112 degrees. Glass if easily molded, but at about 240 degrees, metal at much higher temperatures. Fiberglass at lower than body temperatures. Plastics are made from petrol-chemicals and are in all the oceans, lakes and streams, in every plant and animal cell and are the direct cause of most diseases, including for example Autism. Petrol-chemicals (plastics) are modifying and changing DNA. Every country and the United Nations, along with science are saying "GOOD GOD, LOOK WHAT WE HAVE DONE". It's everywhere and IT IS AN EXTREMELY SERIOUS PROBLEM. It will affect every single human born for the foreseeable future including your children's children. Sorry, have a nice day.

Tinfoil, particularly for the purpose of hat-making, is approved by anon at 8:33am.

Anon 12:29, Nope, nope & nope! Anon 8:33, most definitely & absolutely doesn't recommend Tinfoil for the purpose of hat-making. Search the word "ORGANOTIN", make a Tinfoil hat for someone in your family or loved one, or your pet, and after doing so open your mouth to change your feet! Oh, did you mean to say aluminum foil? Better yet, take a chemistry class!
