Nationwide roadside assistance company with hq in Rødovre. This old Atego is on a very special mission... a royal mission even!

The vehicle on the bed is HRM Queen Margrethe's personal golfcart, a danish made Garia with the license plates "Krone 75" (Crown 75)

It is one of the newst additions to the royal fleet... and also the smallest. The queen uses it when visiting parks and similar places where a normal car would be unpractical.

On this occasion it is probably being transported to a site of such a visit.

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.
