Hello

It is out of the question (for you) to leave vehicles on or drive them along passenger routes.

or

Leaving vehicles on or driving them along passenger pavements is by no means permissible.

Which of the two sentences mentioned above would you choose for Safety Instructions?

Maybe neither of them.

Thank you.

"Parking or driving vehicles on pavement is strictly prohibited."

That would be a head-scratcher in American English, where the pavement is what you drive on. You could replace that word with sidewalks for American readers.

"vehicles" isn't really required.

Parking or driving on the ​pavement is strictly prohibited.
