GM fined $35 million in ignition-switch safety case

Posted by Jim Miron | May 18, 2014 | 0 Comments

General Motors agreed on Friday, May 16, 2014 to pay a $35 million civil penalty for its slow action to address an ignition-switch flaw that has been linked to 13 deaths.

The Washington Post  story, written by reporter  Michael A. Fletcher states that the fine is the maximum penalty the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration can impose for failing to disclose safety problems in a timely matter.

The story also reports that the fine represents just a tiny fraction of the $37 billion in revenue GM generated in just the first quarter this year.
