Re: Cycling in Zurich

. If you use zebra crossings it appears to be a grey area if cars need to give way to you (or maybe it's Zurich drivers!) but they must if you are walking the bike so take your time to see how that works. I would be happy for someone to clarify this.
Riding across a Zebra crossing on a bicycle is technically illegal, and you have no right of way. (ie if a car hits you, you are at fault). You must dismount and walk your bike across, which classes you as a pedestrian (cars must then give way).

Strangely roller blades and trotti-scooters are classed as "toy vehicles" and cars need to give way to them being ridden across zebra crossings.
