Cohort Pic(k) of the Day: Volvo A-Traktor – Top Speed 30km/h? Supposedly So

Corey Beherens shot this Volvo A-Traktor in Markaryd, Sweden. It may not look like it, but technically this is considered and licensed as an agricultural tractor. That means it’s regulated to a top speed of 30 km/h (18 mph), but the real attraction is that it doesn’t require a license to drive, which is not available to Swedes until age 18. So 16 year olds can go cruising in these specially modified “tractors”. And they don’t always ashere to that speed limit, needless to say.

Here’s another shot:

Note the lack of a license plate.
