Google Now Testing Self-Driving Cars In Washington

If you live in Kirkland, Washington you should keep your eyes out for Google's self-driving cars starting next month. Google must want to see how those things handle in the rain.

The company's Google unit has conducted autonomous vehicle testing for six years in Mountain View, California, where it is based, and it expanded testing to Austin, Texas last summer. Google said in a statement that one reason for the new site in the northwest United States is to gain experience in "different driving environments, traffic patterns, and road conditions."
