I don't know if this is a printing error, or it's supposed to be like this. I'm talking about the black lines at an interception and the corresponding black square. I have some questions regarding the picture:
- If Jack is in 28 and the Red Policeman is in the red circle, can Jack move up and left to number 26(not seen in the picture)? It seems like the black lines that go to the left don't pass under the black square;
- Can the Green Policeman ask for clues/make an arrest on number 46? Again, it seems like the black lines that go to that number don't pass under the black square.
There are other situations like these on the board, and some are even harder to tell.
I'm 90% certain yes to both.

Specifically, the third entry in the Jack's Movement section deals with half a dozen intersections where the map is less clear than it should be.
This has been discussed before (check the FAQ in the files section).
Long story short, it is not a printing error and is indeed intentional. However, because it is extremely hard to tell (and virtually impossible if there is a policemen token standing on it) some people disregard them and treat them as if they were normal crossings like everywhere else on the board.
Thats how we play, however your free to choose as you wish.
You can't handle the truth?
If you look on jack's player screen, you can see this isn't a printing error. Jack's player screen shows the same thing, and I feel it's actually clearer on it.
No reason not to play it as intended.
