Rothwell, Rob




Inspired by his father’s “mad scientist” can-do determination, Rob’s passion for the automobile was sparked at an early age. As a teen, he owned and tinkered with an eclectic array of vehicles prior to embarking upon a 33-year career in policing. Rob found his journalistic voice a decade ago, and has been road testing and reviewing automobiles ever since. Rob retired from policing and is now the Fleet Operations Manager for the Vancouver Police Department. He is also a member of the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada.
