Asphalt is a gross smell, it makes me sick to my stomach when I smell it.  That and roofing with the tar.  Luckily we don't get either around here were we are.  Must of the time, when they fix the roads around here they just do a quick coat over what is already there.

I get nauseous in traffic. I think it's the emissions that make me sick. To the point of looking for bags to throw up in, but I've yet to throw up.

 Oh Gosh Yes! They were doing something down the road from me and it was blowing in my kitchen window. My stomach churned so bad from the stink.  At first I thought there was something wrong with my eggs. Lol!

 Ouch, is he ok?

Quoting soy_latte:

My husband develops properties for the government and large corporations (military bases, hospitals, Target, Winco, etc.). Asphalt and cement are a necessary evil for him. Yesterday he came home with a huge chemical burn. He got too close when guys working with it and rubbed his arm on something. It's pretty nasty stuff, really!

Oh, yeah. It was blistered and raw but not serious.
