“At a bicycle crossing, a driver has an obligation to give way to cyclists and drivers of class II mopeds who are on, or are just about to enter, the bicycle crossing.” (Road Traffic Ordinance)
Isn’t the final alternative answer also correct?
– Partly, but what makes this answer wrong is the use of the word “No”. You do have an obligation to give way. This answer only extends to road-users who “are on the bicycle crossing”. The obligation to give way is a stronger concept that also includes road-users that are approaching the bicycle crossing. The Road Traffic Ordinance states that:
“Drivers who have an obligation to give way must clearly show their intent to do so by, in good time, reducing their speed or stopping. The driver may only drive on if, with consideration to the positioning of other road-users, the distance to them, and their speed, doing so does not cause any danger or obstruction.”
There is also a driving licence book online (2023).
