How soon can I drive on the new surface?

With a chip seal, once the rocks, or chips are placed on the surface, it can be driven on. Because it is a fresh application, some care must be taken. Please drive slowly – at or below the 20 mph speed limit on residential streets. Also, please avoid sudden stops, sudden accelerations, and sharp turning while sitting still. Any movement forward or backward, even very slow movement, while turning the wheels is recommended to help protect the fresh surface.
