Why was a fog seal applied on the cul-de-sacs instead of a seal coat like the straight sections of road?

Tandem axle, double tire, garbage trucks make sharp turns in cul-de-sac bubbles and cut into a fresh seal coat thereby peeling up large sections of the surface.  The asphalt that is being used with the Fog Seal is specially treated with polymers and pulverized tire rubber to make it more unyielding to the heavy, slow-speed turning movements at the end of the street.
