Dropped Kerbs

Here in Lockleaze, the minivan M209XHW shows how the dropped kerb at a traffic island not only provides a safer route for pedestrians, it benefits vehicles too.

The wide dropped kerb lets the van slide straight up to the pavement and so park close to the wall, letting it park between the driveway in front and the pavement crossing behind. There is adequate room for pedestrians to one side; this is the shared space we've heard so much about.

and look, he's kindly parked so a wheelchair user can come off one dropped kerb, go along the road and get back onto the pavement at the next dropped jerb.
