GM ordered to pay $35M for delayed recall

The U.S. Transportation Department stated that automaker giant General Motors (GM) must settle a fine worth $35 million for failing to issue an immediate recall of millions of vehicles affected by a defective engine switch, CBS News reported on May 16.

According to U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, the department will not tolerate car makers who fail to immediately report auto defects that may endanger millions of people. Federal investigators discovered that GM was aware of the defective ignition switches that resulted in several deaths and injuries for a decade, and yet they never issued a recall until this year. GM stated that they will settle the fine imposed on them and will strive to become leaders in vehicle safety in the future.
