Turn your headlights on, it’s the new Swiss law

GENEVA, Switzerland – The Swiss Council for Accidents Prevention or Bureau de prévention des accidents, has mandated that as of 1 January 2014 all cars in Switzerland must drive with their headlights on during the day.

Only mopeds, bicycles, e-bikes, agricultural vehicles or cars put into circulation before 1970 are exempted.

Drivers that do not have their headlights on during the day will be assessed a CHF 40 fine.

The measure, part of the Via sicura programme, is  intended to make vehicles more visible, thus further protecting bicyclists and pedestrians.
