The curb piece is invisible (below line of sight) when pulling in to the
parking place.

With respect, if you missed seeing "a bolt sticking about 2" higher than
the curb itself, intended to keep the curbin place, but it got me in the
air dam and tore it off", then you need to either be more aware or have
your eyes checked.

I can see the bolt when I start to park.  I can not tell when the bumper
gets near it because it is by then below my line of sight.  There are no
index markings on the pavement to either side showing me where the curb
is.  If it were a real curb/gutter, I would have no problems at all. The
entire piece of concrete is hidden be the front of my Prius when I pull
into the parking place.

My eyesight is 20/20.  The air dam on the Prius is about an inch too
low.

So according to that logic you inch ahead just far enough to catch the
dam then back off to remove it.

Brilliant.

At which point, the dam tears off.

Indeed.
