Kodiak Robotics Names California Highway Patrol Assistant Chief as Head of Law Enforcement Policy and Roadway Safety

Kodiak Robotics, Inc., a leading self-driving trucking company, announced that Brett Fabbri joined the company as Head of Law Enforcement Policy and Roadway Safety, effective immediately. In his role, Fabbri will oversee Kodiak’s relationships with law enforcement agencies across the 50 states, and will help ensure Kodiak trucks continue to meet the company’s rigorous standards and rules of the road before driverless deployment on the highway.

Prior to his retirement from CHP, Fabbri also chaired the Enforcement and Industry Modernization Committee for the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, which identifies technological advancements that can be leveraged to improve commercial motor vehicle safety.
