The real name for what the simplistic Americans call a "side walk". I can only assume that this name was picked as several Americans died through not knowing where to walk so they walked in the road, hence the turning of the name of a pavement into a set of instructions.

1. The sidewalk
2. A highly influencial 90s rock band that started in 1898 and then, unfortunately split in 1999. Stephen Malkmus was frontman (guitar and main vocals), backed up by Scott "Spiral Stairs" Kannberg (guitar), Gary Young (drummer in the beginning), Mark Ibold (bass), Steve West (drummer after Young left), and Bob Nastanovich (percussion).
After Pavement fell out, SM developed "Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks" and Spiral Stairs started "Preston School of Industry."
Though five years have gone by since the band's demise, it still releases new editions of albumns and DVDs, thus retaining their impressive legion of fans.

The greatest band ever to walk earth.
Run from the pigs, the fuzz, the cops, the heat
Pass me your gloves, theres crime and its never complete
Until you snort it up or shoot it down
Youre never gonna feel free - Pavement lyrics

In Britain, a raised pedestrian footpath on either side of a vehicular road (sidewalk). Or the material that such a path is composed of.
FYI: Americans use both "sidewalk" and "pavement."
