The diagram above shows a driveway apron with a raised curb at each side. The green lines delineate the walkway. A pedestrian in the walkway who does not see the curb (particularly a visually-impaired pedestrian) may trip and fall. An individual in a wheelchair will find this difficult to negotiate, and may need to travel in the street to get around it.
Where there is a cut with no ramp, it should never be inside the pedestrian through zone (where people walk). Ideally, this kind of construction should be entirely avoided.
