Striping curb serves many purposes. The primary reason for striping curb is to identify Fire Lanes. The addition of red curb to fire lanes only marked with signs can help ensure emergency lanes and parking stays clear. This will allow medical, fire, and police services to properly access parking lots and connect to fire hydrants.
