Pedestrian crossings are primarily intended for pedestrians. In addition to those walking, pedestrians also include:
Persons in wheelchairs (when moving at walking speed).
Persons on roller skates.
Persons on roller skis.
Persons on scooters.
Cyclists and moped drivers may use the pedestrian crossing, but the cars have no obligation to give way to them.
The easiest way to avoid misunderstandings and accidents is to seek eye contact with the pedestrians.
However, you should not wave the pedestrian over, as this creates a false sense of security, especially if there are multiple lanes. If you wave them over, the pedestrian will perhaps relax and assume that the whole road is clear, and then there is a car coming fast in the other lane with no intention of stopping.
Never force someone to cross. If you have stopped for a pedestrian who is clearly indicating that they do not intend to cross at that very moment, you should drive on and not stay and make the person cross.
Unguarded pedestrian crossing
Drivers have an obligation to give way to pedestrians who have stepped out on the pedestrian crossing or who are about to do so.
When you are driving and approach a bicycle passage, you must adapt your speed so that you do not cause a danger to those on the bicycle passage.
What exactly does it mean to “adapt your speed”? – There is no exact answer, you must simply make a reasonable assessment.
The cyclists have an obligation to give way to drivers, not the other way around.
If you are crossing a bicycle passage while turning or exiting a roundabout in a car, you shall give way to everyone on the bicycle passage. The cyclists still have an obligation to give way. This is meant to increase safety (both have obligations).
