    Correct Answer
    C. Drivers must be careful.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Drivers must be careful." This notice is the most relevant to the picture because it emphasizes the need for caution while driving. The other notices mention restrictions or rules that do not directly relate to driving, such as children not being allowed in the area, only adults having to pay, and not everyone being able to make a call. Therefore, the notice that instructs drivers to be careful is the most appropriate choice.
