Robotaxis and driverless cars are a common sight in San Francisco now. California officials’ recent expansion of service and testing has allowed even more of these cars on city streets. Unfortunately for residents, it’s been a headache, with traffic, accidents and other puzzling incidents happening more and more. Now using data provided by the California DMV, The San Francisco Chronicle has created a map that shows just how many incidents involving driverless cars have happened in the city.
Right before the decision to allow the companies to expand service, Cruise and Waymo came forward and told officials just how many driverless cars they had on the city’s streets: Waymo said it has a fleet of 250 vehicles while Cruise has a fleet of 400; 100 during the day and 300 at night. While that seems like a lot, driverless car testing has been going on for nearly a decade. And the California DMV has been keeping track. The agency has records of incidents going back to 2014.
Between the two major robotaxi companies, Waymo has reported 107 collisions, while Cruise reported 64 out of 241 total reported between 2022 and now. So far, none of these collisions have resulted in any deaths in California.
With the tech seeming as if its not getting better anytime soon, this map may start to look a little more cluttered going into 2024. You can check out the full interactive map on the SF Chronicle website.
