Poor page name, conflicts with Restriction, simply move to Access or Access rules

Template:Map Features:restrictions-> Template:Map Features:access

horse=yes - is not restriction, but access. Only =no tags restrict you. We use term "access" and not "Restrictions" in ID. Xxzme (talk) 03:56, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

access=official - This does need some clarification which is what the main page says at the moment "needs clarification." In the US "official use only" is very common, almost always and very often on large interstate highways where there is a purpose built "crossover" in the median strip dividing the two sets of lanes, but it is used in other places as well. It means only government or emergency vehicles can use that portion of the road, not private or commercial vehicles. So police cars, ambulances, road maintenance trucks, tow trucks only. I am working on a set of roads right now in Switzerland where "official use only" seems to apply as they are well paved roads in a military area that people can walk/bike/rollerblade/horseback ride on, but the only motorized vehicles allowed are military or police vehicles, which are "official use" vehicles. --Bgirardot (talk) 01:45, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
