Judging by the very few reports of autonomous vehicles involved in accidents, these systems have already surpassed that mark!

Read up on how many vehicles are being tested, it's not that many, especially in comparison to the average number of cars on the road in the test areas. Besides, you are basing your statement on reported incidents -- I have little doubt that a lot of "minor" incidents have not been reported.

Let's put this in IT terms: Testing so far has been unit testing. One report mentioned 600 cars. Ok ... over what time span and how many on the road at once? What are the recorded incident types, and how many of each occurred during testing?

So far there's been no system testing, and certainly not load testing. Before we can do these the following critical question must be answered:

How many deaths of innocent persons during testing are an acceptable number?

More deaths will occur as the number of autonomous vehicles are on the road.
