We should make a difference between "physically impossible" and
"physically possible but legally forbidden". This is important for a
series of situations, e.g. an emergency car in action could cross a
road marking without problems (paying attention to surrounding
traffic), while if would still be physically impossible to cross a
concrete or steel barrier. Ideally our data would allow to extract
this information.
