You put them on the fender of your car so it would scrape the curb to let you know how close you are. I have not seen one in many years.

Dang. I haven't seen curb feelers in a long time. And you only saw them on city cars. We don't have curbs in my neighborhood. Thanks for the 'blast from the past'.
