It 's more stable like that and helps.
Another word for that, that I normally use is straddle. One foot in front. In some cases on the foot in front WITH the toe lifted. With luck, and a wide straddle, the front foot will be over the rough spot before the rear hits it. Then shift some, or all of your weight to the front foot after it is past the rough spot.

Hate those wheelchair rough spots. Forget it. I'll step off or up, a curb to avoid that.
