GM slapped with $35 million fine for delaying recall

General Motors (GM) on May 16 was ordered by the U.S. government to settle a fine worth $35 million for postponing the recall of millions of vehicles with a switch defect, CBS News reported.

Reports said the automaker agreed to settle the fine and to undergo monitoring. U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx stressed in a press conference that the government will not tolerate irresponsible automakers that fail to maintain safety standards. Chief Executive for GM Mary Barro stated that the company now aims to become a flagship in terms of vehicle safety, and she assured they will recover from this issue.
