The Consumer Watchdog advocacy group pushed for Google to release information related to traffic accidents involving its self-driving vehicles. The Associated Press asked the California Department of Motor Vehicles and Google to see access of the reports, though was denied because of privacy issues.

 

Google self-driving vehicles have racked up more than 1 million miles traveled in autonomous mode, but some minor traffic accidents have also been reported. Google has again noted that human drivers were at fault, and its self-driving vehicles were not responsible.
