At General Motors, Safety is in Our DNA

We pour our hearts into safety because nothing matters more than the ones we love. With Periscope, we look at safety holistically. That means developing initiatives to support safe driving. And we are developing technologies that can help mitigate crashes. Why? Because reducing human error can help reduce crashes and that helps us all feel safer on the road.
