Traffic psychologists believe that if you encourage people to think rather than follow rules, this decreases accidents.
What is this "thinking" of which you talk?

It is an ancient debilitating process long since forbidden under Swiss legislation. Some Ausländer retain the ability to think for themselves even after obtaining resident's permits and they must always be kept under close observation in case they contaminate others. In the event that you encounter one you must instantly block your ears with official earplugs whilst recounting all the local rules to the afflicted until they turn away whimpering, whilst making sure to end each sentence with the phrase "Schweizer Qualität".

Switzerland is not the only geogrpahic area to recognise the pitfalls of 'thinking'. The German government have had mixed results in their attempts to quell outbreak of thought - recent successes have been achieved in Frankfurt. Meanwhile the city of Brussels has been altogether more successful as has the City of Westminster. Also large monolithic structures in the city of Washington, DC have seen most traces of thought successfully eradicated. Followers of the thought pandemic say the outbreak looks set to leave Western civilisation of the northern hemisphere very shortly whilst new outbreaks occur almost daily in Africa, South America and Eastern lands.

Re: Question on 30 km/h Zone Rule

Until last year I lived there too, and I know exactly which part you're talking about.

They did have those signs there (at one point at least) in the past.

When I drove there it was basically a case of whoever looked like they would get there second gave way. Usually seemed to work...... Unless somebody made a suicide dash trying to over take the bus on the way to Birmensdorf....
