Problems sometimes arise when you are on your way in a scooter along the pavement. In Switzerland this is allowed if you are handicapped, so no problem. However, when a van is parked on the pavement and there are men dressed in their orange working on the road, it can become a problem. One of the guys very friendly said I could move into the road. However, I had to decline. The step is too steep and it can be quite dangerous when there are cars and trucks moving past.
He then said to wait a few minutes and one of the guys got into the truck and drove off to allow to pass. He drove to the roundabout along the road and returned. On the way we gave each other a friendly wave. After an hour I returned from the town and yes, he was there again on the pavement and so I waited a while until he again drove away. No-one was angry, everyone was polite and I was glad that there were no further problems.FOWC with Fandango: Amenable
