The strange fleet numbers of ambulances and other rescue vehicles refer to their home bases - 3/01 was (is) the Aarhus South station. If a vehicle was transfered from one station to another, this prefix would change accordingly, while the main 4-digit number remained as it was.

Recently the prefix system has been phased out, so on new vehicles, there's only a 4-digit fleet number.

Going up the steep hill leading sw out of Aarhus past Viby and Stautrup. Underpowered and/or heavily loaded trucks often struggle here.

Tip: to locate trucks of particular interest to you, check my collections page, "truck collection" (www.flickr.com/photos/lavulv/collections/72157684190396672/ ) - here you will find all trucks organized in albums, by haulier (with zip-codes), year, brand and country.

Retirement age for trucks: many used trucks are offered for sale on international markets. If sold to a foreign buyer, this will not be listed in the danish motor registry, so a "retired" truck may or may not have been exported. In other words, the "retirement age" only shows the age, at which the truck stopped running on danish license plates.
