As statistics show, most often self-driving cars get into an accident not because of their own fault, but the fault of drivers of other vehicles.

At least two of the six collisions involving robotic vehicles that occurred since the beginning of the year were started by people. Moreover, it was purposeful attacks on cars.

#1 Incident

One of the incidents occurred on 10 January. The unknown person in the Mission District (San Francisco) crossed the road on a red light and screamed at the driverless Chevrolet Cruze, stopped in front of a pedestrian.

The man bumped into the car and broke the left tail lamp of the vehicle.

#2 Incident

The second one dated January 28 and also occurred in San Francisco. Might be a coincidence, but this case is also connected to self-driving Chevrolet Cruze.

It is reported that the taxi driver got out of his car, went to an autonomous car, stopped behind a taxi, and struck the left passenger window. There were scratches left on the glass.

At the time of the attacks, there were drivers behind the wheel of cars as it’s required by the law of California.

California Department of Motor Vehicles has finally allowed driverless cars to hit the streets in spring, but the main requirement remains: the car should be operated by a human driver in case of an incident.
