WHY ARE SIDEWALK RELIEF CRACKS USED?

Sidewalk relief cracks or control cuts are placed in concrete, normally every 5ft or so, to help prevent unwanted cracking of a slab. Inevitably concrete will crack, so these relief cracks are used to control where the cracks will occur. Concrete joints are put in to create a weak point so that the concrete can crack in a controlled manner. However, these cut are not made to prevent a crack.
