Re: Car accident

Just to update this.... The fault of the accident was deemed 50/50 between me and the biker.

I had a 200chf fine (& huge charges!) and I've got to surrender my licence for one month. This is the minimum penalty I could have got 'for crossing the white line'.

Bit perturbed now as I'm leaving the country for good so I haven't enough time to complete the entire ban in Switzerland. I've tried to call / email to ask what to do, e.g will they just post the licence on to the uk if I start the ban here, but I'm yet to receive a decision (as it's August & everyone's on hols).

So my nail biting continues.... But there you go. Watch out for bikers in case they decide to make use of cycle lanes, be careful if you get waved in and always check carefully when you have to give way....

Thanks for support.
