Heavy Rescue Vehicle R1 of Aarhus' main central fire station. Unlike the vehicles operated by Falck, the ones run by Østjyllands Brandvæsen only carry specialized license plates (like R1 in this case), which cannot be looked up in the vehicle registry. They do have standard plates assigned as well, but these are not in use for everyday purposes, so trying to locate them in the vehicle registry is as good as impossible, unless you happen to know the number.
Going down the steep hill leading northeast into Aarhus. The motorway ends by Åhavevej in Viby. From here, the trucks can continue straight on to Marselis Boulevard across Skanderborgvej before ending at the port of Aarhus, 6 km from here.
Tip: to locate trucks of particular interest to you, check my collections page, "truck collection" - 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.
