It seems that even self-driving cars driven by computers are subject to crashes just as much as those caused by human error. Furthermore, Google is the first to make a self-driving car, and the vehicles have been out in specialized markets for about six years. In those six years, there have been about 11 crashes, all which have been minor with no injuries.
Currently, the self-driven cars are only being tested in Nevada and California; 50 of the vehicles are in California. Thus far, four accidents have occurred in California since September. Of those accidents, Google was operating three of those cars. In other crashes, two occurred while the car was driving, and two other instances a person had taken over the wheel when the accidents happened.
