General Motors (GM) is increasing its involvement in Cruise, its self-driving car subsidiary, to address safety concerns. GM is appointing one of its own executives, Craig Glidden, as chief administrative officer at Cruise to oversee legal, policy, communications, and finance teams. All supervised and manual autonomous vehicle operations in the US will be paused, affecting around 70 vehicles. This pause aims to rebuild public trust following an incident in October when a pedestrian was hit and dragged by a Cruise robotaxi. Cruise will also conduct a safety review, hire a third-party safety expert, and a chief safety officer.
