Traffic laws in Switzerland

Switzerland has a reputation for quality roads, and its laws are pretty basic.

The most important thing to be aware of is that use of toll roads requires a sticker, known as a vignette. They cost CHF 40 and allow drivers unlimited use of toll roads. Keep in mind that a vignette is required even if you’ll be driving only once on one toll road.

Switzerland requires that cars have a warning triangle to display in case of an accident.

Drivers who need to wear prescription glasses are required to have a spare pair in the car as well.

Mobile phone use is forbidden.

All passengers are required to wear seat belts.

Fines can be given on the spot.
