Yep! And the Hamburgers took a poor view of that. Hence the name. Plattdeutsch: Altona = "All zu nah".

In that case they're out of their heads! Already in the disastrous (for the Danes) war of 1864 the good citizens of Mysunde and Schleswig were actively working against Denmark and for the Prussians/Austrians. No need to try to hold on to people who're hostile to you.

PR-21 Holbæk Motorway

The Holbæk Motorway has been widened in 2012. Some photos between Taastrup and Roskilde:

Curiously, the route number background for Primærrute 21 changes from yellow to white in this last sign. Which means it suddenly has become Sekundærrute 21.

For whatever technical reason the background colour for the route number on this particular sign (and may be the following) has been white for many years.

But at least the background colour for the route 23 sign has been renewed since Streetview was there in 2012 (and a new layer of asphalt has been applied):

Similarly, they have a hard time figuring out whether E55 goes to Helsingør or it sort of just disappears where køge bugt Motorvejen ends.

I saw a similar curiosity on one of the Motorvejskryds Kliplev sign in the southbound direction... the logo is upside down

I understand the speed limit is 130 km/h on Danish motorways. Do the police hassle cars driving 140 km/h?

What sort of traffic might I expect from Hirtshals to Hamburg on Saturday, 4 October?

I'd stick to the limit. Police activities are high on motorways, and lots of hidden speed checks. Volumes of traffic are never really that high anywhere in Denmark except from the Copenhagen area.

With your needle on 140 you should be safe. 120 on 110-areas, of course. Be careful on Vejlefjord bridge, they have many speed controls there.

Traffic is usually not a problem in the Danish part of the route. The German part might be dense, but not congested. It is not summer season anymore.

On a saturday in september I wouldn't expect problems on the German part either, except maybe in Hamburg itself.

However, I suggest you respect the limit on the Danish side. And on the German side there isn't a limit for most part anyway - the most notable exception being the bridge over North Sea - Baltic - canal.

The cops are going to be looking for him now you said that

I hear they're rough nuts, comparible with their colleagues in the States. Even the Germans are warning about them, telling its citizens they're not the same as back in the Heimat...

If you respect the 130 limit you will be one of the few to do it. I drive the Danish motorway every day, and have practically never seen, and certainly never encountered, speed controls on Danish motorways. On other roads you will encounter the now-and-then speed control, but not on motorways. Just this morning i drove on a 110 km/h section and the flow of the traffic was at a speed of approx. 135-140 km/h.

If your needle says 140, your real speed is between 130 and 135 no one will fine you for this. For the E45 in Germany large parts of it is now 120 due to annoying 24/7 shoulder-running thing.

Especially not if there is no control, which there isn't.

But whatever you do, please stick to the speed limit at road works. There's a 2x multiplier on the fine, and more likelyhood to VW Transporters with speed cameras in them.

I have a question:
Driving on Danish motorways I spotted what looked like stationary speed cameras on motorway exits (e.g. Haderslev S and Aabenraa S).

Are these really speed controls? And how much are you allowed to drive on exits, anyway?

There are no functional stationary speed cameras in Denmark. It could be ANPR cameras, or an experiment to detect wrong way drivers.

I must disagree. I usually try to stick to the speed limit on motorways as accurately as possible (without having cruise control) and usually end up overtaking more cars than getting overtaken by. Not just Denmark but many other countries as well, and I couldn't really call the Danes the craziest ones.

Yes, from all Scandinavian drivers, I'd say the Danes are the most aggressive ones, but they do generally stick to the limits. Unfortunately (in my experience) they also stay in overtaking lanes way to long.
