WASHINGTON (June 11, 2014) — General Motors Co. has met requirements of federal safety regulators for documents and other information tied to the recall of 2.6 million vehicles for defective ignition switches linked to 13 deaths and 54 crashes, and the company is no longer being fined $7,000 a day, a newspaper reported.
GM will pay more than $420,000 in fines for not meeting an April 3 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) deadline to answer 107 questions about the recall, The Detroit News reported late June 10, citing U.S. safety officials.
GM agreed to pay a separate fine of $35 million on May 16 for delaying the defective ignition switch recall for a decade. As part of the $35 million fine and under a consent decree with U.S. regulators, GM faces wider government oversight of its safety initiatives for up to three years.
