SE: When and how did you get involved in LEVs?
HM: I was researching for my diploma thesis start October 2006 and so I came to ExtraEnergy and LEV`s.
SE: What is your personal motivation to work in LEVs?
HM: I`d like to find out, how I can change the image of the German word „MoFa“(mobi). It means slowness, coziness, freedom, but also inefficiency, air pollution, noise and of
course motorized bicycle. In our country, the legal driving age for a moped is lower than for larger motorcycles, and consequently mopeds are popular among the youth.
In the 60`s/70`s mopeds moved a whole generation, but today they become extinct. Pedals are frequently out of use.
