The tag barrier=kerb is used to map a kerb (US English: curb), a short barrier for vehicles and wheelchair users, usually found at the edge of a road, path or sidewalk. The height of the kerb is important and with this information, the usage by different groups can be determined. The height of the kerb is tagged additionally as height=*, if available. Right side is bottom, left side is top.
See also kerb=*, which is used on the node of a way at the location of the kerb.
Renderers and editors might indicate the lower side of the kerb (the right side of the OSM way) with small triangles pointing downwards.
