While visiting tourists may be happier not to have to compete with traffic outside the Casino, the professionals who work on the square have voiced their frustration with the experimental re-routing of local traffic.

“Now that pedestrians can move freely in front of the casino, parking a car becomes very complicated. If I crush someone, I will go directly to prison,” one attendant told the newspaper.
