Fines Mount As GM Avoids Answering Questions Related To Faulty Ignition Switch

DETROIT (WWJ) – A government agency says it plans to fine General Motors $7,000 a day until the automaker answers outstanding questions about a faulty ignition switch.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave GM an April 3rd deadline … but the automaker is refusing to respond until an internal investigation is finished.

The agency says that GM failed to answer roughly one-third of the questions they were required to remit and it is imposing a fine.

The NHTSA says many of the questions GM failed to answer are not engineering ones … and should have been answered by the deadline.
