The California Department of Motor Vehicles is keeping a close eye on accidents involving self-driving cars.

Since 2014, when the state mandated a report for any accident involving a so-called autonomous cars, there have been 113 crashes, according to information on the state DMV's website

The crashes are becoming more common. Half of the reports are from 2018 accidents. 

Roughly half of those collisions and other accidents have involved cars from General Motors' Cruise program, which is based in San Francisco.
