There is, but newest firmware tends to completely overlook the 
prohibitions. AFAIK Garmin never used them in their non NT maps, hence 
they start to boot them out.
All prohibitions that exist in Mapsource, also (existed) on Garmin GPS. 
Newer Firmwares/Devices before started to only offer a few of them and 
not using truck, bus, taxi, emergency anymore.

Still for those that do use an older device, they should be included.
