Nothing matters more than the ones we love. We’re developing initiatives to support safe driving and technologies that can help mitigate crashes.

“The convergence of all-electric propulsion and cutting-edge in-vehicle connectivity, is a testament to how we are working to make our vision of a world with Zero Crashes, Zero Emissions and Zero Congestion a reality, not just in the US but right here in the Middle East too. With over 20 years’ experience in delivering Connected Car Services, GM is re-imagining the customer experience both in-vehicle and out.”

A vision of zero crashes

GM is committed to helping create a future with zero crashes.

What We Know

At General Motors we are driven by trusted research from safety leaders and government organizations to help us understand the driving challenges we face every day.

We know that 1.3M people die each year in traffic crashes, globally 1. That is why we are working to bring attention to this important issue of safe driving. We work to design safe vehicles and collaborate with industry leaders to help influence positive driving behaviors.

Teen Driving Safety

Having a child in the car can change how you see the road ahead. We know that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for 5–29-year-olds 1. General Motors looks at safety holistically, to help keep both parents and children safe and focused on the road.

Driver Distraction

Distracted Driving

At General Motors we know that Distracted Driving is not safe driving. Even a two second off road glance can double your risk of a crash or a close call. 2

That’s why we enable in-vehicle and phone connectivity so that drivers do not have to handle their phones while driving.

Always drive with your eyes on the road.

Buckle up

Seat Belt Use

At General Motors we know that seat belt use is imperative. Wearing seat belts reduces the risk of death in a crash by 45-60% 1.

That’s why we work to spread the word on the importance of seat belt use and incorporate reminder systems in our vehicles.
