Mayors must only be run between home and work in tjenestebil, if a driver runs the car, stated the ministry, as the Extra Magazine in december revealed that Rødovres soon as the former mayor, Erik Nielsen, has been furnished, a car park with ladestande just above his home.
'It is the ministry's view that the drive to and from your own residence, when it takes place in the car without the driver, will not normally qualify as a professional driving.'
'It is due to the mayor, when this even leads the car, for the most part will not be available for its work and its employees while driving, and that the car therefore in these cases not can act as a kind of rolling office,' wrote the ministry.
Ankestyrelsen is currently also underway to pass judgement on Erik Nielsen's creative use of the tjenestebilen. But his successor in Rødovre, Britt Jensen, has already made it clear that she will not roll forward in the hybrid-Mercedes'one.
