GM fined US$35 million for delay in switch action

Reuters, WASHINGTON

The consumer group Center for Auto Safety called the US$35 million fine a “slap on the wrist to a hundred-billion-dollar corporation.”

It called on the Department of Justice to impose a fine of at least US$1 billion on GM.

US Transportation Secretary Foxx and the agency also used Friday’s announcement to push Congress to reset the maximum financial penalty to US$300 million from US$35 million. Prospects for passage of such legislation this year are uncertain.
