The California DMV has released a report of all the self-driving car accidents this year

google_self_driving_vehicle_prototypeThe DMV in California has just released every self-driving car accident to happen this year. There were only eight accidents total and none of them were the self-driving Google cars fault. What’s more interesting, out of the eight accidents, six of them were people rear-ending one of Google’s Lexus RX450h SUVs.

Google is required by law to file the proper documents after one of their vehicles get into a crash. They only have a maximum of 10 days after it happens to do it.

Other than Google, only one other company, Delphi Automotive, has had any autonomous vehicle crashes. Ironically, it happened when someone was driving it and not using it’s autonomous technology.
