This one middle school parking lot near me has always had trouble with their parking stops (what are these called?). The concrete curbs have always seemed to be in remarkably poor condition despite being replaced regularly. Why they even need to be there I don’t know.

But about a year or two ago they put in these massive heavy duty concrete curbs, presumably to take the heavier than usual abuse. However, these were too high for most sedans which causes them to just crunch their front lip on them.

I can only guess that people in SUVs think they can just drive over them so they had to make the curbs taller and more aggressive. You can see the state to which most of the old ones were reduced from this constant abuse. Remember, these were all replaced every few years.

It is hard to get across just how massive these things are, which begs the question; “how on earth are people still finding a way to decimate them?”
