Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We have that too, but then you cross at the designated crossing, not just walk around liek they do in those pictures. The designated crossing is Safe as long as you follow the rules, otherwise tracks are Dangerous.

Effective indoctrination should start early, be repeated often and divide the world in clear cut categories.

I forgot to note that the bans on crossing the tracks which became ubiquitous long ago where you live are of course gradually being introduced here along with station reconstructions, with exceptions in line with the "designated crossing is Safe as long as you follow the rules" maxim. For example, on the only line in Hungary where trains currently reach 160 km/h, all stations and stops have either footbridges or underpasses, but most of those weren't built to be accessible for disabled people. So station masters regularly open gates for the elderly (and not just them) after the train left.
