Not sure a "normal guy" can pass the info to the police (it's his word against yours, after all).
If you go on to a private road of course the people there can complain about you. They own the road, they pay for itís maintenance and are charged by the community for any services the community provided in respect of the road. You wonít go wandering into their garden or home just because you felt like it, so would you think their private road is any different?

I suspect if I went to the police with a complaint like that, they would just laugh at me. Mind you Iíd have to go to the Nyon police as our small village doesnít have any.

They really are much more laid back in romande!
Trespass on to a private road is no different trespassing in to someoneís garden or home, so I very much doubt the police will be as lay back as you think, if one of the owners lodge a formal complaint.

They (roads for residents and deliveries, etc.) are NOT private roads, at least around here, they are public roads with limited access.

We have a true private road, access only to us, the neighbor, and the commune.

Of course there are private roads, I lived on one for years and had to pay for it every year and when it was take over by the community we had a final whopper of a bill to pay so the community took it over.

Of course there are, but this one wasn't. Part of it must be paid by me as well, since it's in my village. When you just exit the recycling corner you can turn left and enter this street or turn right and go straight to the road under renovation, then you wait there 2 mins until you get green. It's really nerving.

There's some ongoing road renewing in our village and driving to the recycling area means you need to stop at a mobile traffic light, one of those that gives alternate pass. Obviously you always find it in red.
It does change to green, otherwise it would be broken, which I suspect is not the case.

For the first time, on the way back home, to avoid the traffic light, i decided to take a short cut and drive through a restricted area for 'Zubringerdienst only'.
Bad idea....

You are probably not the first person to do this. Maybe he is fed up.

Can a normal guy just pass the info to the police?
What could the penalty be?
Doesn't old Swiss people have better things to do on a Saturday morning?

The better question to ask is why can't people your age just obey the temporary traffic light. What's the big hurry?

At the nearby park, they have installed signs which illustrate that horses are not allowed on the paths. Last week as I was walking the dog along the road a rider on a horse was just exiting the park, she was waiting to cross the road and the "no horses" sign was literally right next to her. Why is it so hard to obey signs and respect the rules?

Yes, but the ones that are indicated residents only generally are NOT private roads, at least around here, and always were not restricted to residents in the past.

So what are you supposed to do, let's say, if a regular Joe decided to go the police with your license plate for whatever reason? How does he prove you were really there? And how do you prove you were not?
Tom's being literal. Like when you're a kid and you ask "can I <something>" and some smart-ass goes "I dunno - can you?"

There is no need to prove your innocence, it's the police's job to prove guilt.
Unless you frequently park in a 6 hour parking zone near your (one's) house?

Oh no. How dare they make a journey five minutes longer. Of course you should go down a road specifically marked as to only be used by resident and deliveries. How could you think otherwise?

except OP didn't state this was a private road.

Most limited-access roads are not private. They just do it to eliminate parasitic traffic and blue-zone parking.

Private roads are marked as such.

Anyway how I have seen this is that you get spotted by one policeman and he radioes in the car descriptions to the other guys waiting behind the trees who stop you and fine you on the spot.

Bad idea, driving backwards has been fobidden in general for a few years now. Only allowed if you actually have to (no way forward and can't turn around), or to park/manoevre/unload/load up, or during driving lessons.

Re: Caught driving in a neighbours only restricted area

Lucky enough, I noticed yesterday, while walking nearby that the Gemainde have moved the starting of the neighbor's only area a few meters up so it includes now the recycling area in it, which, if it was already moved last Saturday, means that I didn't do anything wrong. It was stupid having to wait always on that traGic light.

Unless you dropped off some stuff to be recycled, you still did.
