Speed limits

If not specifically written, speed limits are :

  • 120 km/h on the highway,
  • 80 km/h on the open road outside built-areas,
  • 50 km/h in towns and villages.

Respect speed limits is in your best interest : speed controls are common and tickets expensive!

Swiss highways

To use Swiss highways, you have to buy the Swiss motorway sticker: It has 1 year validity (from January 1st to December 31st), and has to be fixed and clearly visible from outside. It means that if you have more than 1 vehicle, you have to buy more than 1 sticker, but only if you use highways!

Important phone numbers:

  • police 117,
  • fire brigade 118,
  • rescue service 144,
  • break down service 140 or TCS: 0844 888 111
