"Off limits" in the subway is just your standard Japanese-to-English dictionary error.
"Off limits" entered the vocabulary after WWII. Every single page of the the top dictionary has these useage errors. OF COURSE, nobody would dare mention that the dictionary is wrong so it remains. The longer the mistake remains, the more "correct" it seems to the Japanese. Sheesh.
