Vehicle access - dropped kerbs

A crossover is an area of lowered pavement and kerb which is used to give access to vehicles from a road, across the pavement, and onto a driveway or parking area.

If you drive over a footway, such as a pavement, to get to your driveway and you do not have a dropped kerb you are breaking the law. You should therefore have the kerb dropped before you construct your driveway.

For information about building a driveway and having a dropped kerb constructed please read our PDF file downloadinformation leaflet (PDF, 196kb).
