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.

A hard substance used to make a paved surface (such as a road), or the paved surface its self. Types of pavement include: concrete, asphalt, cobblestones or bricks. Also used by the British as a synonym for sidewalk.
I used to live on a dirt road out in the country, but the road crew came by and put some pavement down. Now my car isn't so dirty.
