The European Commission assisted by TRL, is holding a competition for students and technically-minded people to propose innovative ideas to reduce or prevent tampering of L-category vehicles. (These are mainly two, three or four wheeled vehicles ranging from powered cycles, mopeds and motorcycles, but also include tricycles, quads and mini-cars). Solutions which would prevent tampering on the engine, transmission or emissions of these vehicles.
The so called ‘harmless' modifications that have no adverse effects on safety or environment will not fall under the scope of possible anti-tampering measures. This will not fall under the scope of possible anti-tampering measures in future legislation. This will ensure that customizing L-category vehicles will also be possible and legal in the future. Only measures against ‘harmful tampering' will be taken on L-category vehicles- tampering which has detrimental effects on safety and/or the environment.
The Competition is open to members of the public, schools, riders associations, and anyone who is technically minded across Europe who could contribute to safer L category vehicles.
There is a €500 first prize, €300 second prize and €200 third prize.
