In Switzerland, the Law on Road Traffic sets pedestrians priority on vehicles

This applies only when pedestrians are expected to be on the road, eg. road crossings or roads having speed limit less than 30 km/h.
In other locations, if a pedestrian being on the road for no reason gets hurt by a vehicle, the pedestrian is faulty (also the vehicle has a part of responsibility too if it could have been able to avoid the pedestrian or stop on time).

The best way to avoid responsibility is to say, "I've got responsibilities."
