Your typo makes the surveyor in me chuckle! Never hit a pedal myself. Far more likely is the forgetting you have to keep pedalling on roundabouts. That leads to the boot up your bum. How long are the cranks?
I did it the other week taking a tight turn rather fast, but it wasn't really a big deal. It felt like it wasn't even the pedal that struck, it was the side or the sole of my show that scuffed the road.
Never had a problem with kerbs, but I try not to get so close to the kerb that my pedal is over it anyway
My fixed has been my commuter and winter bike for years and I've not found it a problem myself. Though I did have a touch the other weekend, but I was exploring the handling limit's of my new Genesis Flyer on a fast twisty country lane at the time.
I only had it a couple of times when using an old road (not fixed-specific) frame with a low bottom bracket (designed for 27" wheels and running 700c). Never had it on my current bike - I try to avoid going up/down kerbs but it's not a problem if I have to.
