I can understand the Police not wanting to go out of the station though. Except for doughnuts of course.

Disabled drivers are allowed along after 10am. Is that it?
I used to drive for a food wholesalor and if I had to deliver to anywhere along the street from the Cross to the Fort I would use Harrison Square or that general area before carrying the stuff up the lanes. The only exception to this was on a Friday when Osla's and Max got their massive orders which would have taken too long to carry up the lanes.
I even remember one day seeing the Police walking towards me and I was assuming I was going to get a talking to, but they just walked by.
Are there exceptions for deliveries too?
There was one point last summer the Police were stopping cars outside Solottis asking why they were on the street. There must have been a fair amount of boy racers looking to "use the bank machine" that day.

I think there is access allowed between Sollotis and the cross as there is parking in front of the bank. I'll check the signs next time i'm there and correct myself if i'm wrong.

I think the words "access only" and "pedestrians only" need to be reinforced by a few court cases so that people get the general idea of what they can or cant do.
Perhaps the issue of disabled permits needs looking at. Currently there are some drivers who abuse the system either by driving in a restricted area or parking in a disabled parking bay when the disabled person is not in the car.
