thin cement slabs crack so easy if the bed they're put on isn't really compacted right. are they reinforced at all?

we made some decorative edges of slabs 30 inches by 16 or 18 inches, didn't put any rebar in them, they snap very easily. :( i've broken two of them already this year and i was being careful.

these aren't that strong either.....but he drives an atv at the cabin so no biggy.

I always wanted to do something like this for our driveway

In my past I worked for a city and coordinated with developers who were building new sub-divisions. One of the subdivisions, we made them put those pavers in for an access road to an area that was owned by the City and was not going to be connected to a paved road. The access was for firetrucks to get to the pond for water in case of emergency and for city employees to be able to go in and control the invasive weeds.
The guy who bought the lot was pretty mad when we didn't let him tear them out to put in a second garage. Duh, what part of permanent access easement did you not understand when you bought the property. He called in and complained about them every year because they were hard to mow. He stopped complaining after there was a fire in the area and the pumper truck used the access. The truck took the turn too wide and left a tire track in the lawn where the pavers were not placed. A deep tire track, lol! No tire tracks left where the pavers were, so that was good.
