To help ease concerns related to self-driving cars, Google will issue monthly reports based on accident data and other performance information of its program.




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.
