My only curb rashn the M3 was getting run into a low curb by a Prius that changed lanes nearly right into me (decided better the wheel than the driver's door), but I have managed to curb alloy wheels in the past.
I personally blame it on Kaiser ignoring my 35 degree strabismus when I was a child. Lack of depth perception can be accomodated for longer distances (ie. I can hit a curve ball if I can time the arm), but not closer distances where you are left trying to determine inches from several feet away.
