For all of the problems we know these systems have, and even knowing that some dangerous failures have been suppressed or falsely attributed to human driver failure, the safety level must already be fairly reasonable or a whole lot more horror stories would be coming to light.

I'd guess that the safety level of these systems isn't better than humans yet (which should be the goal), but that it's not far worse.
