I find this funny too. Someone recently told me that you can get fined if you break the rule. Apparently you should adhere to the proper crossings if you're within 50 metres of one.
I was surprised to hear people in the US actually get fined for "jaywalking" and that there's a word for this offense. Your chances of that in Switzerland are close to zero unless you cross an Autobahn. So much for the "strict rules" in Switzerland.
