Driving too slow in a 50 km/h zone

There are low speed regulations for highways. This is a strange question for many, but I still wish to clear this out for myself:

Is there any regulation against driving 35 km/h on the inner city road, where the top speed limit is 50 km/h?

It is important for me, since there are a couple of places in the city of Zürich, where I don't feel safe to drive 50km/h, although it is allowed an some drivers go there even faster. For example here:
A narrow street, wide tree trunks, sometimes cars and bikes parked on a curb, some banners and, of courses, roadworks a couple hundred meters ahead. Chances to hit a pedestrian or an animal are high (a bad visibility and a close proximity) and it is not worth getting a couple seconds earlier to the following clogged crossroads. How slow am I allowed to go on this or similar road without breaking any official rules?
