Cattle have a poor depth perception vision. So the painted lines appear the same as bars across a pit. More than you wanted to know, with photos, at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattle_grid

Spent 30 years of my career in West Texas…can’t recall ever seeing a painted cattle guard. The metal ones were a uniform dark rust color and the ones with wooden side “wings” were weathered to a light gray color with splotches of black creosote. Used RR ties were a popular feature for the posts.
