The company said it chose it for experimentation in "different driving environments, traffic patterns, and road conditions" (Kirkland features lots of rain and hills).

Google has been testing self-driving cars in its home base of Mountain View, California since 2010; it expanded to Austin, Texas this past summer. In total, it has accumulated more than 1.4 million mileage with its program.
