    I read somewhere that pretty much all accidents with self driving cars are rear end accidents --- something about people driving too close and not paying attention.

      but 13 accidents in like that in 5 years is still a lot

        The last two are definitely not the self driving car's fault considering it was rear ended when completely stopped at a light.

        We need better drivers it seems.

        13 accidents in 1.8 million vehicle miles isn't really that odd. It takes many drivers 10-20 years to drive 0.2 million (200k) miles, and this accident rate corresponds to about 1.5 accidents over that amount of driving [see note]. That's really not "a lot of accidents."

        [note] For example, I drive a 12-year-old car with ~160k miles on it, including quite a few road trips and 10-25 mile commutes. Google's accident rate would be equivalent to no more than 1 (minor) incident per decade for me with other drivers being at fault every time.
