A Passion for Safe Streets
At Motional, our passion for safe transportation goes beyond our technology. While autonomous vehicles (AVs) have the potential to eliminate automotive crashes caused by reckless driving, distracted driving, or human error, we know that road safety encompasses so much more.
Safe streets mean pedestrian and cyclist friendly roads, adequate infrastructure, effective use of public spaces, and more. By staying informed and involved with the issues impacting the many facets of urban road safety, we’re committing to creating an overall safer mobility ecosystem that our AVs will contribute to.
We know there’s no one right answer to improving road safety. That’s why we’re taking a multi pronged approach where we’ll use our resources and extensive knowledge in mobility, as well as our passionate team members, to support this important movement.
