Poor GM, they are in a world of stinky brown stuff..
I don't see why the NHTSA has their hands out, of course I am not a business major.
Rather than fine them and take the money for themselves, they could use that too pay back some of the bailout money they received, that would be a better way to put that money to use, who knows what they will use that money for.
I like how they say the fine was made with a rounding error.
"At a press conference Friday, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx admitted that the size of the fine amounted to a "rounding error" for an automaker of GM'* size. He said his department is asking Congress to raise the limit for a fine to $300 million. "
That is one hell of a rounding error, lol
I also like how they call the fine no big amount, which in a sense of their net worth it may not even be a chunk, but all the money they will have to dish out to fix all of these cars, and all of the other associated fees will hurt them a bit, according to that they have already had to spend the first quarters profits for the year, that may not seem like a lot to some, but IMO to any business that has to hurt the years financial gain quite a bit..
