Making our cities safer
Our top priority
Safety is what matters most
It's who we are, and why we're here: to build the world’s most advanced self-driving vehicles to safely connect people with the places, things, and experiences they love. From in-house technology design and on-road operations, to our customer service features and community partners, safety guides everything we do, every day.
A better way
Today's roads aren't safe
Every year, 40,000 families lose a loved one to car crashes. Auto collisions are the second-leading cause of death for our teenagers, and progress on reducing our road fatality rate has stalled in the last decade. There is a better, safer way. One with fewer collisions, more confident riders, and at-ease pedestrians. The driverless future won't just make life easier, it will make it safer—for all of us.

On the road
Safety never takes a backseat
We continue to prioritize operational safety as we scale our service to new markets and deploy more cars onto the roads. From vehicle safety checks, to how we manage our fleet, to cybersecurity protection, we have the tools, teams and technology in place to keep riders and the communities we operate in safe.
For our riders
Cruise vehicles remind each passenger to buckle up before riding. When starting a ride, passengers receive both audible and visual prompts to safely secure seat belts, close car doors, and keep their arms safely inside the vehicle during their ride.
Safety in action
A comprehensive approach
A culture of safety
We're working to improve safety from the inside out. That means building a culture that prioritizes, enables and encourages safety at every turn.
