Keep Out

Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum IX 4171 = I2 1831 (tr. E.H. Warmington):
The lower road is property of Titus Umbrenius, son of Gaius. Pedestrian traffic, by request only. No person to drive cattle or cart.

Via inferior
T(iti) Umbreni C(ai) f(ilii)
precario itur
pecus plostru(m)
niquis agat
Pedestrian, while implied, isn't in the Latin. I would translate "passage by permission".

R.S. Conway, The Italic Dialects, Vol. I (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1897), p. 301 (number 273):
On a large stone which had rolled down the hillside on to the right bank of the Salte near the bridge of S. Martino below Capradosso (Cliternia).
Cf. similar inscriptions in Hermann Dessau, Inscriptiones Latinae Selectae, Vol. II, Pars I (Berlin: Weidmann, 1902), p. 476:
