We recommend that you do not drive or park the car on the asphalt for at least 3 days (longer is better in very hot weather, because it takes longer for the heat to escape the asphalt). You may walk on the asphalt right away, but objects with sharp edges or narrow points (i.e. kickstands, automobile jacks, ladders, etc.) should not be placed on the asphalt for the first twelve months unless you put a board or steel plate under the object to displace the weight and keep it from causing an indentation in the asphalt. Try to keep very heavy vehicles (fuel trucks, concrete trucks, etc.) off the asphalt for at least one month if possible.
