EPA, Sweden are stories about youngsters in Sweden, who according to the law can drive EPA tractors on the roads if the cars aren’t capable of driving faster than 30km/t. The Swedish girls and boys in the rural areas of Sweden express their creativity and pride through this possibility of modifying ordinary cars and trucks into personal EPA tractors.
