A (for example footway) barrier=kerb is a barrier for vehicles and wheelchair drivers. 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.
