I recently was about to make a right turn at a light controlled intersection in downtown Zurich when at the last moment I was cut off by a skateboarder who passed me on the right in the bike lane. Afterwards it got me wondering who had the right of way. Is it still correct that if the light is green one has the right of way to turn right? Or is there a new rule that warning detectors are now required on a car's blind spot?
You would have been in the wrong. You have to ensure you can safely turn without endangering others before making your turn. Certainly you do not have an absolute right to turn right without regard to other traffic legally in the bike lane.

At least if it had been a bike - not sure about the legality of skateboards and bike lanes.

Nothing new about this btw.
