I’m just trying to provide some helpful advice for Reporter #1, who says

I… don’t even know where to start with this.

Aw, come on, Reporter #1!  We can do this.  Let’s see.  That’s a bizarre, if not ungrammatical, choice of preposition, for one thing.  And I kind of feel like “Children pick-up only” would feel less like an instruction being given to children if they’d gone with… something else.  Yeah, this sign just creeps me out too.

    The fact that this sign appears (from context and from the look of the building) to be in front of a school makes it even worse — an educational institution approved this thing?

    I think this sign’s meaning is pretty clear, and that parking signs should get some leeway for brevity. (Does this comment constitute trolling?)

  3. Reporter #1 says:

    David, I would propose the following, which is more brief than the existing wording:

    No Parking 3:30 – 6 PM
    Reserved for School Pick Up

    Or even…
    Reserved for School Pick Up
    3:30 – 6 PM
