Probably built that way for emergency vehicle access.


Yup. Required by the Fire Department.

Also helps the occasionally rare moving truck that needs to make a turn up there.

Our famous roundabout has the same mountable curb on its edge, so fire engines, larger vehicles, Samtrans etc can mount the non-landscaped portion of the roundabout. Won’t be long until that too will be covered with black tire marks.

Bruce Dickinson

Folks I may be close to 8 decades old, but I gotta tell ya, if there's one thing I've learned in driving all my sports cars over the years, is that I do know how to drift! Wrecking a Ferrari is an expensive proposition, so there's no room for being a hooligan--when you drift, do it right with extreme control and finesse!

So to be clear, none of the tire marks in the concrete center in this or the downtown roundabouts were caused by Bruce Dickinson. Now the ones on the asphalt on the other hand.... *wink*


It is just the right size to ruin a $500 Porsche tire at dusk.
