Signs - Kiss & Go

Sign at the local High School - the Kiss & Go sign, which is common in front of schools, railway stations and even airports. 
This means you can only stop your car briefly to drop-off or pick up a passenger and then drive off.

FOR OTHER SIGNS please go over to Tom's blog.

  1. It's awhile since I had to drop off my son for school(he's 35-lol), but I sure would have loved to seen something like this at his school! Such fun! Hugs, RO

  2. Funny those Chinese characters, must have a lot of Chinese pupils there.

    1. I would think maybe 1/4 of the students would be Chinese, but apart from signs in "Chinatown" I think this isn't common in Perth.

  3. Here it´s called "Kiss and ride" at the train station, where my colleague let me go on Fridays. Without the kiss, but he did kiss me once indeed! Wine and his Birthday were involved. And he called me "Kleines" from that day on always cause he was so embarassed, too, LOL (Ingo knew all about it).
    He was an attractive man and others thought we have an affair, but that was never the case!! We had both weekend-relationships, same car, same workplace, some evenings together, oh, it was difficult!
    He´s married now and has a daughter :-)
    You brought up some memories.... He always invited Ingo, too and always hugged him.

    1. I've also seen Kiss and Ride signs too.
      Lol, at least he was friends with Ingo too which is good.

  4. Both terms, Kiss 'n' go and Kiss 'n' ride are used here, mainly at commuter parking lots. Based on casual observation the number of kisses declines with age (or perhaps the length of time married!)

    1. Thanks David. A true observation I suppose, but almost 39 years of marriage I still kiss my husband about 4 or 5 times a day.

    1. Thanks Tom. I's quite common here but I had never seen it or maybe noticed in other countries either.

  6. This is on the topic of murals... today's New York Times has a major article on Miami murals with lots of photos and I think the blog readers here would like it!

  8. We could use one of these for the schools near where we live. The lines are enormous to lef the kids and since it is near a cross road...
    Boa semana

    1. Oh yes, Portugal needs those signs near the schools. Or maybe more kids taking public transport to go to school :)

  13. I've not seen any signs like this, but what a great idea … it makes sense!

    All the best Jan

  14. We have such signs. Bit surprised to see it in Chinese though.

    1. I wonder why this sign is also written in Mandarin, as our suburb doesn't have a high proportion of Chinese. I'll have to see signs in other suburbs to see if they also have them in both languages.

  15. I love it, BUT have never heard of this or seen one in the states. Really unique in my part of the world.
