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.

True, it is very rarely enforced from my experience there also except when a certain NY mayor decides he wants to get the city in order and this is the next step to cleaining it up and then the police give up after a few days.
