2012 Honda CR-V: Convenient Clearance
August 20, 2012
I despise high curbs and parking blocks. Why there's no standardized height for these things escapes me. A conspiracy perhaps conjured up by curb/block manufacturers and body shops? Who knows? But after a passenger scraped the bottom edge of my MR-2's door so many years ago, I've learned to carefully check the clearance if it looks questionable.
When I rolled up into this prime parking spot with this rather tall curb-like structure on the driver's side, I opened the door slowly and saw that I had plenty of clearance. Cheers to the little crossover for eliminating one of life's little stress points in the asphalt jungle.
