How should the height of curbstones be laid on urban roads?
The curbstone of urban roads has both drainage and safety protection functions. The unevenness of the curbstone should not only satisfy the requirements of drainage, but also take into account the requirements of traffic safety. The height of curb stone that satisfies drainage requirements in the project only needs to be greater than 5 cm. Starting from the viewpoint that pedestrians may get on and off curb stones, curb stones less than 15 cm in height are safer. Considering the need to protect pedestrians from jumping cars, the height of curb stones is required to be greater than 35 cm. Under the circumstance that the height of the curbstone is relatively inconsistent, the author thinks that the probability of pedestrians getting on and off the curbstone in the city is far greater than the possibility of jumping. Especially in urban roads, non-motorized lanes and side bands are generally set to make motor Lanes are far from sidewalks. Based on the above arguments, it is recommended to fully implement the people-oriented thinking and reduce the recommended value of the curb height of urban roads. The recommended curb height is 0-10 cm.
