Safety should be key when talking about pedestrians, and crossing there just wouldn't be safe.

Exactly! But the problem is in the way we address it. Rather than making it safer for pedestrians at these problem areas (namely, by slowing traffic down), we simply ban the pedestrians.

A grossly exaggerated example of this would be finding that lots of people who get shot tend to die - so we make it illegal to get shot instead of restricting the use of guns.
