This should go without saying but playing around on railroad tracks is dangerous. The national rail operator in France launched a no-selfies campaign because young people are trespassing onto tracks for social media posts.

Both France and the UK have reported a 40% increase in youth railway trespassing incidents last year that resulted in 23 deaths and 11 serious injuries. The #SurLesRails campaign tells people that “taking pictures on the tracks is to risk never taking pictures again.”
