In Switzerland, the Law on Road Traffic sets pedestrians priority on vehicles

This applies only when pedestrians are expected to be on the road, eg. road crossings or roads having speed limit less than 30 km/h.
In other locations, if a pedestrian being on the road for no reason gets hurt by a vehicle, the pedestrian is faulty (also the vehicle has a part of responsibility too if it could have been able to avoid the pedestrian or stop on time).

piripiri piripiri writes  |  more than 3 years ago

piripiri (1476949) writes "The prototype plane Solar Impulse, which draws its power from the sun, has took off today at 06:40 GMT from Payerne, Switzerland and is expected to pass over Luxembourg and land at Brussels airport at approximately 9pm (GMT+2). Once again, the plane will be piloted by André Borschberg, who achieved the world's first manned 26 hour solar flight in 2010. The event can be tracked via the official iOS and Android smart phone applications or online via the Solar Impulse website or follow the project on twitter or YouTube."
