From 1 January 2014 everyone must drive with their lights on during the day in Switzerland. If you are caught driving without lights, you will be fined €33 (CHF40.-) which incidentally is the same price as the motorway vignette. The only exceptions are old cars that were registered before 1 January 1970.
Nearly all European countries have the same regulation about daytime driving with lights on, notably in Scandinavia, but also in Hungary, Italy, Croatia and Slovenia. The regulation was introduced in Austria in 2005, but was later abolished.
